Sickness and Medication
Please inform the nursery as soon as possible if your child is unwell and will not be attending nursery that day. A child cannot attend nursery if they appear to be suffering from an infectious disease or within 48 hours of their last attack of sickness/diarrhoea, this is in order to reduce the risk of affecting other children and staff, especially our young babies who are vulnerable. Medication can only be given if it is prescribed and written consent is given. If a child requires medication such as calpol to get through the day then they should not be in the nursery as we are unable to care appropriately for sick children and it is unfair on them and the other children.
Children who are prescribed medication such as antibiotics are unable to attend the nursery until they have been on the course for 24 hours in case of reactions and to give them time to work.
