Can my child attend nursery whilst taking calpol or other medication 

If your child is poorly, we would ask that you keep them at home until they are well enough to attend. 
If you have given your child calpol or another form of paracetamol before attending nursery, you must inform a member of the team. 

If your child presents with a temperature whilst in nursery, you will be contacted to collect them and we would only administer emergency calpol if the temperature is very high. 

If your child is on any other form of medication you must ensure that you sign the medication form with a staff member
