Health and Medication

nursery2If your child becomes ill during a Nursery parents must always give written consent before medicine can be administered to the child (Ask staff for the detailed procedure). You should provide medicine that has a clear prescription label on it with your child’s name. This should then be passed to a senior member of staff. Children on prescribed medicines may be excluded at the discretion of the Nursery Manager/Deputy

If antibiotics have been prescribed to the child, the child should be kept away from the nursery for 48 hours first for your child’s comfort and well-being, and second to minimise cross-infection. Any child with antibiotic medication will not be given it or more than five days at the nursery

CHILDREN SHOULD NOT ATTEND IF THEY HAVE VOMITED, HAD DIARRHEOA OR A HIGH TEMPERATURE WITHIN 24 HOURS PERIOD PRIOR TO NURSERY ATTENDANCE.

San’s Day Nursery reserves the right to exclude a child if it is considered to be infectious or not fit enough to attend. When a child has suffered from an infectious disease or illness, a clearance certificate is required from the child’s GP on return to the nursery.
