We request that parents notify Nursery as soon as possible if their child will be absent.

If your child has an unidentified rash or illness they must remain at home until they have been seen by a Doctor and a diagnosis given.

If your child becomes ill whilst at Nursery we will contact you immediately on the emergency contact numbers on your child’s application form that is completed when your child is registered with us. It is very important that Nursery is notified immediately of any changes to these details.



Medication can only be administered by Nursery staff if the child has been seen by a Doctor and the relevant medication and dosage has been advised. Parents will be required to complete a medication consent form at Nursery stating all relevant information.

All medication that is administered at Nursery is done so by two Early Years Practitioners and all information is recorded in the Medication Book.

For further information please refer to our Medication Policy.
