What if my child is unwell?
Illness / Accident

Any child who is unwell (E.g. rashes, diarrhea etc.) should not be brought to nursery, which reserves the right to refuse to accept the child until the nursery is satisfied that they are not infectious, to protect other children from cross infection. The nursery’s exclusion policy is guided by the Communicable Disease Control Unit, Cheshire and Warrington Health Care NHS Trust. Antibiotic medicines will only be administered by nursery staff after the child has been taking them for more than 24 hours at home and only then on written authorisation from the parents.
 
If a child is taken ill or is injured, First Aid will be administered and the parent will be advised. All accidents are recorded in the Accident Book and he parents are asked to sign the entry. If the child requires emergency treatment, the nursery reserves the right to take him / her to hospital, informing the parents as soon as
 
possible.

Parents must notify staff of any allergies or relevant medical information.
