Illness | Downderry Childcare


If your child does not attend a session due to illness and is contagious – such as chickenpox, measles, etc – please telephone the staff so that they can inform other parents within the provision. In certain circumstances – such as Meningitis – the staffs are required to inform other official bodies, as well as other parents.

If your child has had diarrhoea and/or vomiting, they should not attend a session until at least 48 hours after the last symptoms – this includes parents/carers. As you will appreciate, we have some very young children attending the setting and could be adversely affected if they come into contact with contagious infections.
