SICKNESS & INCUBATION PERIOD

Fee Paying parents are required to pay for any absences that occur during Pre-School Term.

Please keep your child away from Pre-School if they have a known contagious disease – and get advice from your G.P. if you are unsure.  Please do not bring your child back to pre-school until the  the correct incubation period has passed.

For example:

SICKNESS/VOMIT – 48 HOURS FROM THE LAST TIME THE CHILD VOMITED.

DIARRHOEA  -  48 HOURS FROM THE LAST TIME CHILD SHOWED SYMPTOM.

CHICKEN POX -  Although  infectious before spots appear, most parents will not realize their child has this illness until spots are seen.  So, from the appearance of spots please keep your child away from Pre-School for  ONE FULL WEEK (8 days)  AND/OR  WHEN ALL SPOTS ARE DRIED.

COLD’S/ COUGH’S / SNEEZES / SORE THROATS  -  Please have in mind that if your child is suffering from a cold/cough then  hygiene practices are not really met at this young age,  and germs easily get passed on to other children and staff in the setting.  So, please have a thought for others before bringing in your child to pre-school and keep your child home for a few days.
