Illness

Sickness/Exclusion Policy for Communicable Disease

It is our policy to ensure that the environment maintains the minimum opportunity for the spread of infection, therefore below is a list of certain illness/diseases which will require a period of time when the child cannot attend the Nursery.

Please be aware that there are many different illnesses/diseases. We will act on the side of caution if we suspect a problem. Please be understanding of our environment and the need to protect others.

We are aware that often illnesses have incubation periods where the child is infectious, however, we cannot control this and therefore as soon as symptoms appear we will act accordingly.

Please note that it is the decision of the Nursery Manager whether a child is unfit for Nursery. These rules have been compiled to ensure that the spread of infection within the Nursery is kept to a minimum.

All information of illnesses will be logged on the child’s personal file.
