What are the policies of looking through my childs hair at nursery

Have you asked to see the Policy documents which your nursery should provide? In any case, surely you would look through your child's hair regularly? Many nurseries I suspect rely on parents to check their children and inform them should there be an instance of head lice, then the nursery will warn parents to be aware of the situation.

Should have consent,but, you may have signed something when you signed all those papers when your child joined without noticing.Certainly a lot of nurserys are putting in consents for this because so many parents don t bother,Some even insist that children found with live nits are removed and not returned until properly treated in the contract.
I ve seen children that you wouldn't need to look through the hair to see the live nits you can see them from the other side of the room.
