For minor illness or injuries at nursery, after giving first aid (if appropriate), a team member will call you to let you know of the situation. You will not be required to collect your child if you do not wish to, unless it is an infectious disease as described in our ‘Illness and Injury Policy’. After trying both parents, if we cannot reach you, we will leave a message where possible to do so but no further action will be taken to try and contact you.
If, in the opinion of the team, your child is ill and requires medical treatment or diagnosis, you will be contacted and requested to collect your child as soon as possible.
For more serious accidents or illnesses, where the team feel that hospital treatment is required, you will be contacted straight away, and either asked to meet the team and your child at hospital, or collect them from nursery to take them yourself if you are nearby.
For any illnesses or accidents that occur at nursery, you will be asked to read and sign an ‘Accident/Illness/Injury Form’ at the end of the day.
