When children fall ill at the Centre
If your child becomes unwell during the course of the day, we’ll notify you and ask that the child be picked up as soon as possible. If we are unable to contact you, we’ll call the person nominated by you as the emergency contact instead.
If in the event of a sudden illness or accident, we are unable to contact you or your emergency contact – and we believe your child could be at risk – we will seek immediate medical attention. This could be contacting your doctor or calling an ambulance.
- Ensure you sign the Medicine Authorisation Form if your child is on medication and recovering, and you require staff to administer their medicine during their session at the Centre.
