Illness at Kindergarten

Illness and Medication

If your child is not well, please keep him/her at home. A child who is not well can become very distressed when in a group situation. Also, staying at home will help prevent the spread of infections to staff and other children.

If your child is on medication and you wish to request staff to administer it, please note the following points.

  • Only medicine which has been prescribed by a doctor can be administered by staff
  • All medication provided should be properly labelled with the name of the student and the appropriate dose and frequency. (The means to administer the appropriate, accurate dose must also be included).


We would appreciate a telephone call or email to the front office (93076365) if your child is going to be absent and a note on return to explain the absence.
