From time to time, children may become unwell whilst at the nursery. If this should happen, we will inform you immediately and agree a course of action. We generally follow the guidance for schools and nurseries issued by the Health Protection Agency, although we may take a company view and extend the exclusion periods for certain illnesses.

Children may not attend nursery whilst infectious and, in the event of sickness and diarrhoea, may not be admitted for 48 hours after the last bout of illness. For a detailed list of exclusion periods, please check the policies and procedures board in the nursery. For further information about childhood illnesses and the signs and symptoms that accompany these, please visit the NHS website,
