Accidents and illness



If your child has an accident whilst in our care, first aid will be administered. However, in an emergency we will contact you as soon as possible, and if considered necessary, will seek emergency treatment for your child. All of our Early Years Practitioners hold a valid paediatric first aid certificate. Every accident is recoded and communicated with parents upon collection, and you will be asked to sign the accident form.



If your child become unwell whilst attending nursery we contact their parent(s) and ask them to pick up their child as soon as possible. During this time we care for the child in a quiet, calm area with their key person (wearing PPE), wherever possible. Should a child have an infectious disease, such as sickness and diarrhoea, they must not return to nursery until they have been clear for at least 48 hours. If your child is absent due to sickness or illness we ask that parents contact the nursery at their earliest convenience.
