Medication can not be given to a child unless a consent form has been signed by their parent/guardian. Calpol/Nurofen will be given to counteract a high temperature, teething (where necessary) etc. but parents will always be notified before we administer medicine.
 
Our policy on illness in the crèche is if we feel that the child is unable or unfit to attend due to an illness or a contagious illness, you must keep the child out until they are able to attend. The full fee still applies.

Safety/Security
