ILLNESS/INFECTIOUS DISEASES

Infectious Diseases

 

Infections in children are common. This is because a child’s immune system is immature. Added to this, young children often have close contact with their friends, for example through play, and lack good hygiene habits, making it easier for infections to be passed on.  Many diseases can spread before the individual shows any symptoms at all (during the infectious period). Guidance on infection control in schools and other childcare settings

Meningitis and Septicaemia

As a childcare provider, it is vital that our Pre-School and parents are aware of all the signs and symptoms of meningitis. Early recognition and treatment reduces the likelihood of meningitis and septicaemia being life-threatening and resulting in lifelong after-effects. It is not always easy to recognise the signs and symptoms in young babies, therefore it is important to trust your instincts. Please follow the link for further information
