Please ensure full medical details have been given to staff prior to commencement.

ILLNESS

If a child has a high temperature, sickness and diarrhoea and/or is obviously unwell, then staff should speak to the Nursery Manager, and the child's parent should be contacted. The parent/guardian book should also be completed.

Calpol can be administrated when appropriate, provided that authorisation has been given by the parent. If medication has not been signed for on the child's arrival for that session, authorisation can be accepted via a fax detailing amount to be given, time and signed by the parent. It is the parent/guardian responsibility to keep staff informed of whereabouts at all times.
