Health & Safety

Health and Safety documents will be displayed on the premises and all relevant insurance and fire certificates will also be displayed. Results of Health and Safety visits from relevant authorities will be displayed for parent's information.

Illness:

Certain symptoms in children may suggest a presence of a communicable virus. All parents parents/guardians are asked to notify the crèche when exposure has taken place.

  • Fever - a temperature over 98.6 degrees, especially if accompanied by vomiting, sore throat, diarrhoea, headache, stiff neck or undiagnosed rash.
  • Diarrhoea - any abnormally loose stools in the previous 24 hours
  • Vomiting - any episodes of vomiting within the previous 24 hours
  • Eye/nose - thick mucous or pus draining from the eye or nose.
  • Sore throat - especially when fever or swollen glands in the neck are present.
  • Skin problems - rash, undiagnosed or contagious infected sores with crusty yellow or green drainage that are not covered.
  • Itching - persistent itching of body or scalp.
  • Hair lice - must be reported
  • Vaccinations - must be reported

Children who have any of the above symptoms should not come into crèche until:
Your doctor has certified that the symptoms are not associated with an infection, and/or they are no longer in danger of infecting other children. The symptoms have fully subsided.

Should your child become sick or have a temperature during the day, it is the policy of the crèche to immediately call the parents or guardians. We have responsibility to other parents and children and we cannot allow sick children to circulate with healthy children, it would be unfair to the sick child and to the other children.

Parents/Guardians and children will be welcomed into the crèche by a staff member who will ensure the doors are fully closed behind all those entering the crèche. The same policy will apply when the children are going home.
