What happens if my child is ill?

As a Nursery setting we operate within guidelines issued by the Health Protection Team. These guidelines notify us of the exclusion periods and signs/symptoms of various childhood illnesses, which we are obliged to adhere to. These are called ‘Infection Control Guidelines For Day Care Facilities. ’

It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Only when the fever has subsided for a whole day should you return your child to the nursery.

Should your child become ill with sickness or diarrhoea, we ask for the child to be clear from these symptoms for 48 hours, and they have returned to a normal diet, before returning to Nursery.

If the infection/disease is infectious, we'll need a doctor's note confirming that your child is no longer contagious.

If your child has been treated for an illness, please ensure the staff are given sufficient information about the illness/medication upon the child’s return to Nursery. Medication can be administered on the condition it has been prescribed by the child’s GP and is brought into Nursery in the original packaging, that is clearly labelled.

Chicken Pox - advice for parents

Chicken pox begins with a sudden onset of slight fever, feeling unwell, and an itchy rash will start to appear with flat red spots. These spots will then become raised and full of fluid.
Chicken pox is infectious, and is spread by virus from the nose and throat. The fluid from the spots is also infectious. During this time the infected child should rest, and be made as comfortable as possible.

Calamine lotion is recommended to soothe the itching of the spots, until they scab over. It is advised that reduced amount of clothing should be put on the child, and paracetamol maybe prescribed to help the child to feel more comfortable.

The recommended exclusion period for Chicken pox within the Nursery setting is at least 5 days from the onset of the rash, or until the spots have all crusted over.

For parents/Carers who have been in contact with a child with chickenpox, and are pregnant are advised to seek medical advice, as this can be more serious.


Outlined briefly below are details of the assistance which may be available to you, the nursery management will be happy to discuss these in more detail.


Childcare Vouchers

Toybox accepts Corporate Childcare Vouchers as payment of Nursery Fees.  These are schemes which some employers offer to help working parents save on registered childcare costs.

Childcare vouchers are not means tested and are available to all working parents whose employers operate Childcare Voucher Schemes. These schemes save you National Insurance and Income Tax as a set weekly amount can be deducted from your salary prior to taxation. This money is then converted into childcare vouchers for the same amount.


Tax Credits (child benefit)

Nine out of 10 families are eligible for some financial assistance through the Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances. Working Tax Credit includes a childcare element to help families who are working and spending money on childcare.


Nursery Education Grant (Childcare Funding)

The Government introduced the Nursery Education Grant to provide a free early education place for 3 year olds and all 4 year olds, as well as eligible 2 year olds. Toybox receives annual Education Grant which is allocated to your child once they are eligible. The amount available per child changes from year to year depending on government funding, We will be able to confirm the current amount to you and to explain how the system works when your child qualifies.
