An unwell child does not enjoy the time at Playgroup and can spread illness to others. Please do not send your child to Playgroup if they have an infectious illness. A sheet with guidelines for infectious illnesses that can affect this age group will be sent upon acceptance of your child’s place at Playgroup. Please keep this handy and refer to it before sending your child in. A child with sickness and diarrhoea must be completely clear of symptoms for 48 hours before returning to Playgroup. Any regular/essential medication needs to be discussed with the Manager if it may need administering during the session time.
Parents, staff and volunteers must not prepare snack for the children if they, or someone in their immediate family, has suffered sickness or diarrhoea within the previous 48 hours. This is important to keep the risk of infection as low as possible.
