Head lice We have seen a rise in numbers of head lice not been treated, we have been left with no other option for families that have been given advice and not acted upon this but to exclude children until they are clear. After receiving medical advice from health professionals it has been advised to wet comb conditioned hair for up to 30 minutes daily to remove all lice and eggs.
Lost property Please can we all ensure that when collecting our children from nursery we are emptying trays and pegs of the children’s personal belongings. We have an excessive pile of spare clothes that have been left and nobody has claimed. At the end of every term we have no other option but to now pass the lost property clothes to the children centre to put on the sale rack.
