We take precautions at Hugo & Holly Day Nursery to prevent the spread of infectious diseases by following the guidelines provided by the Health Protection Agency (HPA). For further details of the HPA guidelines please click here.
Whilst it is not our policy to care for sick children who should be at home until they are well enough to return to nursery, we will agree to administer medication as part of maintaining their health and well-being or to help recovery from an illness.
In these special cases we follow procedures written in line with current guidance in ‘Managing Medicines in Schools and Early Years Settings”. The manager is responsible for ensuring all staff understand and follow these procedures.
Part of the procedure that we follow requires that the parents of children needing medication whilst they are at nursery, complete a Medication Form. To download a copy of this form please click on the link below:
