What to do if my child is ill?

Sickness or diarrhoea

If your child is sick or has diarrhoea (runny poo) at home, then they must not attend Pippins until 48 hours after the last episode. So, if your child is sick on Monday night, then they must not come to Pippins again until Thursday morning. This is to try to minimise sickness throughout Pippins.

Other illness

It is hard to decide whether your child is ill first thing in the morning! This website is really helpful: Should my child go to school/nursery today?

Illness during a session

If your child becomes poorly during a session, we will phone your emergency contacts, to arrange for them to be collected.

Covid-19 and Pippins

We have vulnerable people within our Pippins community and want to prevent them (and anyone else in our wider community) getting Covid-19. If you are able to keep your child at home, then please do so. For information on the current government guidance, please visit their website here.
