Sickness

View our sickness policy

The following has been found necessary for the health and well being of all the children

Children should be kept at home if they have:

  • a high temperature
  • diarrhoea & sickness
  • a urine infection
  • ringworm etc.

and not return until the child is completely free from infection and no symptoms persist.  For all other illness symptoms, please refer to HPA guidance

Your children may return to nursery if they are in reasonable health and on prescribed medication.  We have experienced First Aid Officers who are able to administer medication with your written consent

If your children are on ‘unprescribed’ medication, parents can make arrangements with the Room Leader to return to administer such proprietary brands, for example ‘Calpol’ and ‘Bonjela’

If children have been ‘ill’ in the previous 24 hours they should be kept at home for a day to ensure there is no reoccurrence of the symptoms

Parents will be contacted during the working day if we consider your child has become too unwell to remain at the Centre so please make sure all your contact details are up to date

Please do not hesitate to contact your Room Leader to ask for advice
