Food Allergies

In an effort to provide an Allergy Safe environment, and to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we ask that you do not send food from home unless your child has an approved Food Agreement signed by you and the centre supervisor.

If you have an approved Food Agreement to provide food from home while your child is at the centre, please remember that all food must be labeled and stored at the proper temperature as per the directions on the Food Agreement.

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.
