When your child is poorly

Prescribed Medication - only authorised persons within the nursery may administer medication to your child.

Non-prescribed Medication - non-prescribed medication can be authorised for teething, mild skin conditions, and allergies, such as hay fever, fever relief, and mild eye inflammations/infections. These will only be administered if you give your permission.

If your child develops a temperature above 39 C, or shows symptoms of serious illness, we will contact you on all provided numbers to discuss medication and whether your child is fit to stay at the nursery or would need to go home.

Whilst at the nursery your child will pick up viruses. To minimise and reduce the chance of infection and maintain levels of hygiene we have placed hand washing sanitisers at the entrance of the building, and ask you to encourage your child to wash their hands before entering and upon leaving. If your child is away with diarrhoea or vomiting, we have been advised that they should not return for 48 hours after their last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.
