Otherwise seems fine. Eating, drinking and happy confused

GeorgieTheGorgeousGoat Fri 22-Jun-18 06:55:59

No that’s quite high. I don’t accept children with temps 38+

Newhouseyeah Fri 22-Jun-18 06:59:56

Do you run a nursery Georgie?

Lorraine265 Fri 22-Jun-18 06:59:57

No of course not

Hell no.

Why did you take his temperature?

BlueBug45 Fri 22-Jun-18 07:00:38

How old's the child?

If he’s fine in himself I’d send him in, warn them he had a high temp and be prepared to have to leave work early if need be.

I assume your child is unwell in some way if you are taking temperature?

Newhouseyeah Fri 22-Jun-18 07:01:57

Took temp because he felt hot. He's 15 months. When he's been ill before it's been VERY obvious and temp has been sky high so 38 something doesn't seem too bad by comparison! Sounds like he's having a Daddy day though!

No way, and I'm quite relaxed about temperatures.

No absolutely not

Pippioddstocking Fri 22-Jun-18 07:04:14

Absolutely not , it's not fair on your child or the other children.

GeorgieTheGorgeousGoat Fri 22-Jun-18 07:04:18

I’m a childminder

Not when over 38

Personally I’d dose him up with calpol and shove him out of the door, but it isn’t the right thing to do. Nursery may well call you back to pick him up again.

(I should note that I’d never send mine with anything contagious, just normal toddler snuffles).

No. Temperature usually peaks in the afternoon - if its so high now, it might get up as high as 39 later.

Hope he feels better soon!

No, no nursery today. Hope he feels better soon.

People shouldn’t be ‘dosing up with calpol’ to get their children into school/nursery hmm

Snowysky20009 Fri 22-Jun-18 07:09:28

Def not

FriendsDontLie Fri 22-Jun-18 07:12:40

When I worked in a nursery, it is incredibly obvious when a child has had calpol. So please don’t do that! We would have sent a child home if they were .5 degrees higher than the highest range, so 37.7. 38+ is a fever

Monny1 Fri 22-Jun-18 07:15:46

Definitely not!

Gammeldragz Fri 22-Jun-18 07:17:19

No. He's probably contagious.

Sharkwithknees Fri 22-Jun-18 07:17:26

My DD could seem fine as a baby with a temperature, then suddenly be very ill with it. It's a pita I know, but I wouldn't send her

You don't send kids to nursery or school with a temperature.
