Infection Control

This guide is to give you information on our infection control policy and the procedures should your child become unwell.  Our policy follows the guidelines set out by the Health Protection Agency and Ofsted regarding infection control.


The purpose of this document is to help us ensure a safe and healthy environment for all children within our care. At Cherry Childcare to reduce the risk of infections we:

•    Provide protective clothing and equipment for staff in accordance with company procedures.

•    Have daily, weekly and monthly routine sterilising processes in place.

•    Outside contract cleaners clean premises daily.

•    If an outbreak occurs a deep clean is completed in the appropriate area/s by nursery staff and contract cleaners.

It is a fact that children will get ill.  By following the guidelines in this policy it reduces unnecessary exposure to illnesses and ensures infections are managed effectively creating a happy and healthy Nursery for all.

If at any time there are any infectious diseases present at the Nursery this will be clearly displayed at the entrance to the room where the infection has occurred.

This leaflet will cover:

What happens if my child is ill at Nursery?

What happens if my child is ill at home?

Key guidelines for exclusion.

Information for Pregnant Mothers.

Should your child become ill they should only return to Nursery when your child is over any symptoms in accordance with the guidelines shown in this policy leaflet and are well enough to do so.

Starting Nursery

This guide is to give you information on what to expect when your child starts nursery and how you can help.

Starting nursery whether on a part or full time basis is a major change in your child’s life.  This leaflet highlights the key areas and what changes you and your child will experience.  Every effort is made to ensure a smooth settling in process but, we also understand this can be very unsettling for both you and your child who may not have had any significant time apart.

Evidence has shown the more sessions your child has at nursery the quicker the settling process becomes but, in any case we have a policy of a minimum of 3 unaccompanied settling in sessions.  These sessions are organised at different times of the day so that you and your child can experience the different routines.
