Just wondering what the general consensus is. Ds was poorly at the weekend - high temp, cough and cold. His temp has stayed down since Sunday afternoon and he is now left with a cough and a very snotty nose.
He is in nursery, as his temp is stable and well, if I kept him off every time he had a cold at this time of year he'd never be in...
But, well, I've just rang, and they said he's been a bit whingy, not eaten very much, had two good sleeps and is now eating some cheerios.
I asked if they wanted me to go and collect him and they said no.
Did you ask for an update when you dropped him off, or mention that he was ill over the weekend?
We call parents to update them on how they are, to suggest coming a bit earlier, or to suggest getting a doctors appointment because we suspect something, and to warn them that if they (the children/child) continues to detoriate then they will have to come get them.
If they didn't want you to pick him up, i wouldn't feel overly worries
Cookie - oh, absolutely, I mentioned that he was ill over the weekend. I've never asked them to call me, but I always ring if either of them are slightly below par, just to make sure I don't need to go and get them.
Pinkjenny - please don't feel bad. As a nursery manager if i felt a child was too unwell to be at nursery i would say. My little boy has a cold every other week so would never be at nursery if he was off. If no temp I wouldn't be at all worried.
