I’ve heard that some of our children have been struck down with a vomiting bug this week and havent been well enough to enjoy our snow days.
Tummy bugs are notoriously difficult to manage in an early years setting as I’m sure you all appreciate however I wanted to let you know that I have been going through our Infection Prevention and Control Policy today to make sure we are all up to date with the latest guidance. This policy is one of our core policies and this incident validates the need for all of our service users and staff to be aware of and be acting in accordance with all of our policy documents.
To this end I am committed to ensure that we have a completely updated set of policies in place by the end of the session. These will require to be ratified per the constitution, however once this process is complete the staff team will be promoting the policies to you.
Meantime, I hope all our little ones are recovering and havent been too poorly. Jordan and I will be reinforcing our hand washing policy and ensuring we and our children are all doing the best they can to stop the spread of infection.
