Children come into contact with many other children and adults in an early education and care service environment, which can result in them contracting an infection or illnesses.


  • Be prepared to provide a medical certificate confirming your child is no longer infectious.
  • Immunise your child. It is the most effective way to prevent serious childhood illness.
  • Children should not attend care if they have an illness that prevents them from comfortably participating in activities at the service
  • Children who become ill can recover quickly if they can rest and be cared for at home.
  • Services will always document ongoing medical needs that can be treated at the service such as asthma or anaphylaxis.
