Illness

If your child becomes ill during the day at nursery they will be placed in a quiet room to rest and away from other children. We will contact you to discuss your child’s welfare, and this may give you the opportunity to make a doctors appointment. We may feel that it is in the child’s best interests to be taken home although we do appreciate that this may not be immediately. However in the case of diarrhea and sickness collection of your child will need to be as soon as possible to minimise the risk of infection spreading.

There are some instances when your child will need time off from nursery due to the risk of illness spreading to other children – a doubtful rash, conjunctivitis, diarrhea, vomiting, and any infectious disease such as chicken pox.

If your child is prescribed medicine by the doctor, we will be happy to administer it, but will ask that you complete a form. We cannot give your child any over the counter medicines e.g. cough mixtures.

We do have a consent form that can be pre-signed giving the manager permission to administer Calpol if your child’s temperature becomes critical and a parent is more than 1/2 hour away. Parents will always be contacted by phone first.

In an emergency we will summon medical assistance immediately or the manager will take your child to hospital (which ever is deemed appropriate) You will be contacted immediately.
