During the current Covid-19 crisis, we have carried out extensive cleaning on our

premises. Together with our other safeguarding procedures, this will help to ensure

we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of you, your child and our staff.

What Happens if my child is ill?

 

Away from the current health crisis it's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. The spread of these infections is increased when children play together. If your child becomes unwell during their stay with us, we will contact you immediately via phone or through the Famly app. (if you have joined us).

 

For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Nursery staff or management will be only too pleased to advise parents on the exclusion procedures, depending on the illness.
