Priory View Pre-School

Illness

Unable to attend

If your child is unable to attend due to illness we ask that you phone as soon as possible to inform us. Unfortunately, fees and sessions cannot be refunded.

If you are in receipt of Early Years Government funding please be aware that, under the Local Education Authority guidelines, you may forfeit funding for the rest of the term if your child has a prolonged absence.

Unwell during a session

If your child develops a raised temperature, nausea or diarrhea then you will be asked to collect your child immediately and we kindly ask them to remain out of the pre-school for 48 hours to prevent illness spreading among the other children.

Coronavirus

If during the school day your child has a raised temperature or persistent cough you will be asked to collect them immediately and we recommend getting a COVID-19 test.

If your child or a member of your household has tested positive for COVID-19, please do not bring your child to the pre-school. Follow the guidance issued by the UK Governement.

For more information please see our Coronavirus page.

Medication

If your child is required to take medication whilst in our care you will have to fill in a form granting us permission. The form will contain information such as the name of the medicine and when your child is required to take it. We are only able to give children prescribed medication from a doctor, nurse, dentist or pharmacist and it must be in its original packaging and with the prescription label. We will make a copy of the prescription label to store alongside the medicine in a secure suitable location.
