To feel like I should have been warned?

Just gone to go pick up my DS from nursery and in a flippant remark about a red mark on his face the nursery worker said ‘it doesn’t look like hand foot and mouth, we have an outbreak at the moment’
I had no idea and having looked at the symptoms I would definitely have opted to not take him in?! AIBU to think here should have been a warning or something about this??

There were almost weekly notes on the door at DD’s nursery about chicken pox/hand food and mouth/nit outbreaks. If I’d kept her off every time there was a breakout I’d have never gone to work! Also at our nursery there were three different rooms so it didn’t necessarily mean it was a child in her room, and even if it was, DD might not have been in on the days where they were infectious.

I would expect either a notice on the front door or an email (I get both from my DSs nursery) - the message is more 'don't bring your child in if they're ill' rather than 'you may want to keep them home' but I don't think YABU to expect some sort of notice about something contagious doing the rounds (chicken pox, hand foot & mouth etc)
Having said all of that though, HFM for most children is, I think, not too bad - it's horrible to get it as an adult tho as I did, caught from DS who had almost no symptoms...

They put a notice on the door on the old nursery we used.
If you opted to not send your DC into nursery every time something is going around, your DC would never be there!

They should put a notice on the door for stuff like slap cheek etc in case you are pregnant
