Food Allergies

In an effort to provide an Allergy Safe environment, we ask that you do not send food from home unless your child has an approved Food Agreement, or if your child(ren) attend one of Owl's Youth Development Programs (YDP) for PA Day, March Break or Winter Break camp at some schools.

Anaphylaxis

Owl Child Care is committed to the fundamental principle of providing and maintaining a healthy environment for all children and staff. In particular, this includes all those who may be susceptible to anaphylaxis, the term used to describe acute, severe, life-threatening allergic reactions to a substance. Owl’s goal is to minimize and control allergies through education. Employees and students that work in the centres are required to participate in anaphylaxis training bi-annually. In addition, a review of the use of Epi-pens and Twinjects® is conducted a minimum of twice annually.

Although it is difficult to ensure a risk-free environment, Owl has designated all of its locations as “Allergy Safe” and will not knowingly serve nut products. Anaphylactic reactions to other substances (for example: eggs & milk) are dealt with on a case by case basis. Owl requires that any individual (e.g., children, employees, students, and volunteers) at risk for anaphylaxis have an Individual Emergency Anaphylaxis Plan.
