What if your child is sick

To help reduce the spread of illness and infection we ask families to observe the following:

  • children with a contagious illness (including head lice and nits), or who have experienced a temperature, vomiting or diarrhoea in the past 24 hours are to be kept at home

  • children who are generally unwell and require one on one care need to be kept at home also.

  • Parents/caregivers will be rung and asked to collect their child during the day if they develop a temperature, experience diarrhoea twice or vomiting. If in the event parents or primary caregivers cannot be reached or are unable to collect their child immediately staff will ring the emergency contact persons noted on the enrolment form and arrange for children to be picked up.
