Health and Medicines
We ask you to be vigilant and check your child’s head for head lice or nits regularly. If they have them, please treat your child before they return to nursery.
Any other health or development concerns you may have can be discussed with nursery staff at any time.
Medicines (including inhalers) can only be administered if a parental consent form is completed. These are available from the school office. Nursery staff can administer medication which is prescribed by a doctor.
Accidents and Injuries
If your child is hurt during the session you will receive an accident form to let you know what has happened, when, where, and what treatment, if any, was given. Please let us know in advance if they are allergic to sticking plasters or any medication.
We ask that parents adhere to our sun safety policy by making sure that children wear a high factor sun screen in warm weather. We also ask that children have a protective hat with their name on it.
On entry to Nursery, we will be happy to support you and your child in their toilet training if necessary and will support you and your child in trying to get them out of nappies and into pants. If your child is still in nappies, we will be happy to change them; please provide nappies, wipes and nappy sacks, which can be left in a named bag for us to use, and replenish when needed. Please encourage your child to use the toilet and wash their hands independently at home. We do appreciate that accidents may happen and will help children to get changed if necessary.
