Medication

Educators will be able to administer prescribed medication to children.

A medication form must be completed and signed by parents before any medication will be given. All prescription medication must be prescribed for your child and not another family member - unless stated otherwise by a doctor’s certificate. Medication must be in date and in its original packaging.

The medication must be handed to an Educator to store in a locked container in fridge. Please DO NOT leave medication in your child’s bag. The Educator who gives medication requires a medication form to be completed by the parent, e.g. tablets, mixture, creams.

Any child who has commenced an antibiotic must not attend the Service for 24 hours from commencement.

Asthma

The Service aims to provide a safe environment for children who have asthma. It is Service policy that an "Asthma Record Plan" be completed by parents/guardians in consultation with the family doctor. It is also a requirement that the record plan be reviewed by your family doctor annually or as circumstances change. This must be completed and returned before enrolment commences.
