Children ear ring policy

Does anyone have a policy on children wearing earrings in the setting? We have a young child who has had her ears pierced and is now wearing more dangly creole earrigns rather than studs. A couple of meembers of staff have commented on the suitability of them and whether they could potentially get caught during play

Most school's policies would be studs so I suppose it helps with continuity and transitions for parents to have a similar approach. However some creole earrings are very small and close to the ear so unlikely to get caught up as nothing can easily get through the miniscule gap. It's a hard one to argue with parents so generally a blanket policy is the only way.

 

Having seen a child's ear ripped through because of looped earrings getting caught (where the parent REFUSED to cooperate) I would only ever want studs. Although I have also had to deal with a child's stud disappear inside the hole and get stuck too!!!

I only ever wear studs to work around children. Yes, our policy is studs only but, as Catma says, some Creoles are small and we have allowed those.

Ours was studs, but as Catma said these too can cause an issue if they are so small they can end up inside the hole...

 

We also had parents sign a disclaimer if they insisted on other earrings , as some do, about not taking responsibility for any injury resulting in the child wearing them as we had advised against it.. etc etc... Once they were asked to sign such a form, many changed to studs..
