This is a user-friendly handbook covering infections in day-care and pre-school children. It includes clear and reasonable recommendations for paediatricians, family practitioners, public health personnel, and day-care and pre-school providers. Recommendations on vaccines and entrance requirements for children and employee health requirements aim at prevention. Once the infection is present in one or more children, a specific approach to treatment containment and return to day-care is outlined.
