  • What if my Child is sick?
    We please ask that you do not bring your child into the centre if they are unwell or contagious. Any illness that the children may possibly be exposed to (from previous reports of illness to the Director), will be displayed on the notice board at the front entrance hall or on the front door. If a more serious illness becomes apparent in the centre a parent meeting will be called. A fever: A child with a fever must be kept at home (or will be sent home). It is advised that the child stay home, fever free for at least 24 hours. Their appetite and level of activity should be back to normal as well. Parents should watch for secondary problems such as tonsillitis or an ear infection. Child with prescribed antibiotics for illness: The child should be kept at home for at least 24 hours. Diarrhoea: A child suffering from diarrhoea should not return to the centre until they have been diarrhoea free for 24 hours. If your child develops diarrhoea whilst at the centre you will be called to pick them up immediately, thus preventing the spread of infection.
  • Medication and Illness
    The well being of the children is our highest priority in the centre. Health regulations do not allow sick children to attend child care due to the high risk of cross infection, so please keep sick children at home. If any medication is required when your child is at the centre, staff should be notified, handed the medication, the parents need to complete and sign the authorisation in the medication book in your child's room. Medication must be clearly labelled with the details including the child's name. Prescription medications prescribed to another person other than the child will not be administered. Please do not leave medication in your child's bag for safety of all the other children in our care. Each room will have a place for your child's medication to be stored. Please make sure you remember to collect your child's medication when leaving as it can't be packed into the children's bag as it needs to be stored out of reach to the children.
