Are you finding head lice at your daycare center? Have you had a lice problem in the past and you want to avoid one now? Or are you being proactive and just want to make sure that you don’t have to deal with the hassle of a head lice outbreak?
LiceDoctors will come to your daycare center and do a professional head lice check on all of the children. Our technicians are experts at uncovering any case of head lice, no matter how early or advanced the case is. The technicians will do so discreetly so as to avoid stigma and class interruption.
Most daycare centers follow the guidelines imposed at the local public schools. The majority of school systems have moved to eliminate “no nit” policies, meaning that children with nits (lice eggs only) are permitted to remain in school, as long as no live lice are found.
No matter what your head lice policy is, your LiceDoctors technician(s) will provide you with an accurate screening. In some instances, daycare centers ask us to treat the infested child at the center, which we will do. In some instances the child is sent home (either upon discovery of lice or at the end of the day) and we can make a house call to the family and check and treat other family members. Head lice are very contagious and if a child has it, chances are other family members do as well. You want to make sure that the problem is treated at its source or the child will continue to return to daycare with lice.
Give us a call at 800-224-2537 any time between 7:00 am and midnight (EST) and we will dispatch technician(s) to your daycare center. We have been in the lice business for over 20 years and we are experts in lice detection and removal. LiceDoctors has successfully treated nearly 600,000 clients. You can be confident that when your technician arrives, she will closely check all of the children and staff to be sure that all cases are identified. If even one person is left with an undiagnosed case, the lice problem will continue. You can be confident with the most experienced lice treatment service: LiceDoctors!
Your technicians will bring the proper tools and lighting to ensure that they can see and identify all cases of lice. Lice detection is best left to the professionals as lice are hard to find for the unpracticed eye; lice move extremely fast when a light is shone and the nits (eggs) are tiny and blend into the hair. LiceDoctors has the experience to find the lice and also the expertise to work with children who may be restless when examined by less adept lice checkers. LiceDoctors technicians are warm and friendly and are great with children. If any nits are found, we will show them to you so you can show them to the parents.
As lice are so contagious, it is certainly possible that teachers and other staff members have contracted a case. If a child has lice, anyone who comes into close contact with that child is at risk for getting lice. Lice are transmitted by head to head contact. Teachers who work at daycare centers are at higher than average risk because of the close proximity that they are in with the children.
When we make visits to daycare centers, we are usually asked to check staff members. No matter whom we are checking, we do so using a step by step, chemical-free protocol. If we find lice on a teacher, we can treat the person at the daycare center or make a house to check all members of the family or if the person chooses, she can self-treat at home.
