All children with an infectious illness should be kept at home until symptoms have disappeared. If your child has suffered a bout of sickness or diarrhoea you must keep your child at home for at least 48 hours from their last bout. This is a strict policy so that we can minimise the spread of infection.

Please seek advice from the nursery staff if you are unsure how long your child needs to be absent form the nursery if they are suffering from an illness.

It is important that the nursery is informed if your child is going to be absent and the reasons why. This can be done in person or via the telephone (01474 833424).

If your child becomes ill while at the nursery every effort will be made to contact you or your emergency contact.
