Sickness and Illness

At Jurassic Childcare we understand that if a child is unwell, it is in their best interest to be in a home environment with adults they know well, rather than at nursery. Below we have compiled a guide to let you know when your child should stay at home. 

When your child should stay home and visit a doctor

  • When their temperature is above 37.5°C

  • If they experience vomiting or diarrhoea

  • If spots appear on their hands, feet, or mouth area

  • If they develop chicken pox

  • If they have conjunctivitis

  • If they have an ear infection

  • If they develop impetigo

  • If they have been given Calpol before nursery

As a small nursery we follow our own guidance and policies, as like to make sure that children, families and staff are protected as much as possible from sickness and illness.
