What should my child bring with them?
Every child should bring with them a named bag and appropriate clothing for the weather as we go outside every day regardless of the weather. In their bag please also provide a spare set of clothes for accidents and enthusiastic water play! If your child is fully potty trained please provide spare underwear and socks. If your child isn't potty trained please bring nappies, wipes, sacks and creams if necessary. Finally please send a named water bottle.
We are taking our child on holiday do we need to let you know?
Yes please! It would be helpful for our planning if you could let us know in advance of any planned holiday dates. If your child has a medical appointment and will be arriving late or missing the session please also let us know either in person or by text or email.
My child is a bit under the weather should I still send them to preschool?
Probably not! Unfortunately children seem to be much better at sharing germs than they are toys! If your child has a high temperature or a temperature that is only being brought down with medication then we would recommend they stay at home. If your child is on antibiotics we would recommend they stay at home for the first couple of days to allow time for them to start to work and to ensure your child doesn't experience any side effects from them. Likewise if they have been sick or had diarrhoea they must not attend until 48 hours after their last episode. We follow the Health Protection Agencies guidance for infection control which has specific guidance for exclusion periods for common illnesses such as impetigo and chicken pox. If you are unsure please feel free to give us a call or seek the advice of the local pharmacist.
