Sickness

Children who are suffering from an infectious disease or who are not feeling well enough to attend nursery should be kept at home.
Parents are requested to inform the nursery if any symptoms of ill health are shown by children.
If your child requires medication while at nursery, parents must give written permission.
If your child becomes ill while in the care of the nursery, you will be contacted and asked to take your child home.
Qualified nursery staff will, when necessary, give basic first aid treatment to children following accidents. If further medical treatment is required, the parent / carer will be contacted immediately and the nursery manager will take the appropriate action. Parents / carers will be informed of all accidents and will be asked to read and sign an ‘Accident Form’.

There are also other forms called Injury on Arrival, Injury Discovered, 1 Hourly Head Bump Checks, Medication and Sickness Records that we complete and inform to parents / carers if needed.  All these forms would be explained fully on a show around of the nursery.
