Kidaroo Kirby Muxloe has unfortunately had reported cases of Chicken Pox, Hand Foot and Mouth and Scarlet Fever.
I would like to reassure parents that the Pre School staff are doing everything they can to help prevent the spread of these illnesses. Kidaroo Childcare has strong policies and procedures in line with health and safety, staff use anti bacterial spray to wipe all touchable surface. A toy washing rota is already place. Staff take children to wash their hands prior to eating snacks or lunch. Children are also encouraged to wash their hands following outside play. Staff have ongoing procedures in place regardless of any illnesses being identified.
