If your child is unwell, your child should be at home. If your child has been given Calpol/Nurofen for any reason, we ask that you keep your child at home for 48 hours of the last dose. If your child needs medication to be able to carry out daily functions, they are not well enough to attend nursery- We give Calpol only in an emergency.

If your child is on antibiotics we can give these to your child after 48 hours of the child having started this medication. You will be provided with a medicine form where you are required to give your consent.


We do say to parents if your child becomes ill during the nursery day, we will inform you. If we feel that your child is too unwell to be at nursery, we will advise that you collect them as soon as you can.
