Medical Information for Nursery Children

Medical Information

On your child’s admission form joining Little Laurels, you will have noted any medical condition. Please notify the school (as they will be taking care of all paperwork for the Nursery) if this changes in any way.

If your child suffers from asthma, a separate form is required. You will also need to complete an administration form for the appropriate inhaler. Please contact the school office for the form and ensure that an inhaler (and if necessary a spacer) is in nursery at all times. Please remember that it is a parental responsibility to ensure the inhaler is up to date. Inhalers will be given back to all parents at the end of each academic year.

For health and safety reasons, medicines in nursery are kept to a minimum. There may be a time when your child will need to have medicine during the  day e.g. to complete a course of antibiotics. The nursery will only give medicine if it is on prescription from the doctor with your child’s name and the dosage sticker on the bottle/box. We will only administer medicine if it is a 4 daily dosage. If the medicine is only 3 times a day this must be done at home.

You will need to bring the medicine into school yourself and complete the necessary form.

PLEASE DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD IN WITH MEDICINE, it will not be given without the consent form. 

If you have any queries about medication, please do not hesitate to contact the school office  on 01903 830901 who will be able to help you.
