Scallywags follows the rules set out by the Department of Infectious and Communicable Diseases.

Please notify staff by 10am if your child is unwell and won’t be attending Nursery. Staff will notify you if your child becomes ill whilst at Nursery.

Please keep your child at home if they are unwell and notify staff when a diagnosis has been made. We can then discuss when your child will be able to return to Nursery.

communicable diseases

Scallywags does not exclude children who have a cough or cold.

Parents must keep their child at home for 48 hours after symptoms have cleared up when suffering from sickness and diarrhoea. This allows staff to control the spread of the infection as quickly as possible.

For more information, please consult the sickness policy in our policy handbook which is in the entrance to the nursery. A sickness form can be filled out here.
