Child's Health History
Please indicate if your child has had any of the following conditions/ illnesses:
Consent for the administration of over-the-counter medication
If your child develops a fever or has pain, it may be necessary to administer an over-the-counter medication. If your child is unable to take certain medication, please contact the nursery to discuss the difficulty or mention it below.
I give my consent to Sunny Meadows Nursery to give my child an over-the-courter medication such as Antipyretic (Paracetamol) or similar to non-aspirin pain reliever, should it be considered
necessary by the Nursery Nurse.
Consent for emergency treatment
In the event that your child requires emergency treatment, you will be contacted and asked to collect your child from the nursery. If the nursery is unable to contact you, your child will be taken to a doctor/hospital for diagnosis and treatment. Efforts to contact you will continue.
I consent to my child being taken to a doctor/hospital in the event of a medical emergency.
In addition, we would like to have your child examined by your own family GP (General Practitioner) please do so within the first term of joining the nursery. We will require a copy of the
doctor’s report to be kept in the child’s file for their health record.
SMMN will have clinical checkups in the nursery which will be administered by a GP doctor provided by our healthcare service provider. Parents will be notified prior to the examination.
We would also like to reassure parents that the safety and wellbeing of the children are of prime importance to us and they are supervised at all times during regular examination by the Nursery Nurse.
(Please note that all consent is valid for the duration of time that your child attends SMMN (Sunny Meadows Montessori Nurseries).
The Department of School Health requires that the nursery maintains current information of each child’s immunization history. It is therefore important that SMMN has a copy of your child’s
Up-to-date records is extremely useful for providing the best care for children in the nursery. Therefore, it is essential that the children’s health records are as accurate as possible.Parents should make sure that they inform the nursery of any changes to the information in the record as soon as possible. They also are responsible for telling the nursery about any specific health needs or any circumstances in the child care setting that may influence the child’s health.
Parents are responsible for filling out admission forms completely and correctly. Upon the child’s admission, a copy of the medical and immunization record has to be provided by the parent which is kept in the child’s file for reference.
For babies between the age group 4 weeks to 1 year, this record is updated every month.
Whereas for 2 to 4 years old, this record is updated every term.
