Keeping our children safe and limiting the spread of infection

Children who are unwell should be kept at home until they are fully recovered and ready to cope with nursery and childcare again. At Milton of Leys we strictly adhere to the 48 hour return rule following the last bout of any vomiting or diarrhoea related illnesses.
