Here is the link for the Montreal Children's Hospital School Diabetes School Protocol for patients on insulin injections. The same documents can be used for daycare. This is a general protocol that you can adapt according to the needs of your child. You can also find on this link the diabetes guidebook #1 and #2 which you can use to fill the school’s individual care plan. The guidebook #3 will be available by the end of 2020.
A more complete school protocol is available on the Diabetes at school website.
It is a bilingual website with multiple resources for schools and daycares. We recommend that you read it and start completing it before the meeting with the school or daycare.
Parents need to organize a meeting with the school or daycare at the diagnosis or before the start of each school year or when the child changes group at daycare. The school nurse should be present and key people from the school such as school director, main teacher, gym class teacher, child care services, secretary, etc.
Parents are responsible for showing the school or daycare how to do a blood sugar, how to give insulin injections, how to treat a hypoglycemia, how to use a continuous blood glucose monitor, etc.
