Rosewood Nursery has a dedicated nurse and we encourage you to talk to her if you have any concerns about your child’s health and wellbeing.
Upon admission, and at regular intervals thereafter, the Nurse will conduct on weight, height and physical fitness. She will let you know if she has any concerns and we encourage you to do likewise.
You must submit the required medical form before your child can attend the nursery. Please alert the Nurse if there are any changes in your child’s medical circumstances.
Nursery staff will not be able to administer any medications without your prior written consent. Please visit the nurse if your child needs medication during nursery hours. A consent form must be filled out by parents and the nursery will log all administrations of medicine given to children, which parent will sign for acknowledgement. In the case of an emergency or a child develops a fever we will call the parent to ask for consent to give Adol. This procedure must be followed even if the parent has signed consent to give medication in the event of an emergency incase the child has had medication before coming to nursery. This is to safeguard the child against being overdosed on medication. Timings and dosages of medications are extremely important which is why the nursery will request additional consent as a safety measure.
Your child must be immunized in accordance with UAE regulations. Please keep the nurse updated of any immunization your child has received during their time at Rosewood Nursery.
Please ensure that you apply sunscreen to your child each and every morning. The nursery will apply sunscreen when extended outdoor play activities and / or water play is scheduled. The sunscreen must be provided by parents and will only be administered if consent is given.
Illness/ Mishap at Nursery:
Should your child fall ill or have a minor mishap during nursery hours, our nurse will inform you immediately and advise if your child needs to see a doctor or be sent home. In all cases, you will receive a medical form with a description of the illness/ mishap along with a description of the actions taken by staff.
When to Keep Your Child Home:
In the event that your child has a fever, an infectious condition or has vomited within the past 24 hours, we ask that you keep him or her at home to recuperate. This protects your child and all children at the nursery.
Returning After Illness:
Once your child is free from fever or vomiting for 24 hours, we welcome him or her back to the nursery. If your child has an infectious condition (lice, chickenpox, etc.), you must provide the office with a certificate from a doctor indicating that your child is free from the contagious condition before he or she can return. Please ask the nurse if you have any questions.
A well – balanced diet is vital to a child’s health, and the food they eat influences their mood, behaviour and ability to concentrate and learn, as well as their physical growth.
Allergies, intolerances, religious and cultural preferences are noted and clearly displayed in the classroom, the clinic, in the kitchen and on the children’s place mats so that staff can refer to them. Please note that our nursery is a nut free zone. Please do not bring any nut products or traces of nuts into the nursery environment.
