We provide care for healthy children and do our utmost to prevent the cross infection of viruses for all children and staff in the setting, especially vulnerable children. Therefore, if your child is ill, please do not bring them into Nursery. We will refuse admittance to children who have a temperature, sickness and diarrhoea or a contagious infection or disease. Refusing a child is awkward for us and for you but particularly your child as they can become upset. Do please phone for advice before coming in and let us know if they are not able to attend 01428 683251 from 8.00 am or you can phone and leave a message or text us on 07580 917923.
If a child has to be given Calpol to get them through the morning then they should not be at nursery but tucked up at home to recover. Calpol is used to relieve symptoms such as a temperature or pain. Your child may rally for a few hours but when it wears off they become distressed.
If your child has had sickness or diarrhoea, you must wait 48 hours clear from symptoms (from either end) before returning them to our care to prevent infections spreading.
While it is not our policy to care for sick children, who should be at home until they are well enough to return to the setting, we will agree to administer medication as part of maintaining their health and well-being or when they are recovering from an illness.
Thank you for your consideration............The Nursery Team
