Bringing child with chicken pox to nursery?

Theres a mum at my dd's nursery whos 2 children attend. One of her dd had chicken pox but the other dd didnt, but she still brought the dd with chicken pox to drop off the child without chicken pox to nursery. But we have to all wait outside until the doors open which means the dc with chicken pox is in quite close contact with all the other children, now her dd chicken pox has gone her other dd now has them, and again, she is doing the same. Wouldn't you just keep both children off knowing the chances are going to be quite high of the sibling catching it? I over heard another parent make a remark about it to the staff and the staff said they have told her not to bring dd onto the premises until spots are scabbed over but she continues to bring dd confused

Yeah she’s being very selfish and irresponsible
If I was you I’d get the chicken pox vaccine quickly done tomorrow for my kids - it might be too late to prevent it if they’ve already caught it but it should make it not so bad or might prevent it if it goes round nursery for a while after this

I never even knew there was a chicken pox vaccine. Will definitely look into it and give the drs a call in the morning. Thank you.

She is being irresponsible but with chickenpox once the spots are out they have already been contagious for about 10 days so it probably already has been spread.

I get your point but what is she meant to do with the other child? Unless school suggest a solution- they will bring the well child out to a different entrance or something similar- I don’t see what else she can do. My poorly children are too young to be left home alone so I keep them in the pushchair but they still have to come up to school for the others.
