It’s important for us to provide a clean, healthy environment for all our children. See Our Illness Policy. We promote good hygiene, safety and wellness as much as possible. But in case your child is ill, we have a policy to keep children at home when they are sick. Should they become unwell at preschool, we will contact you to suggest the best outcome.
