Childminder Sickness Policy

I know that as a working parent, you require a childminder who is reliable. I will endeavour to work on all the days that I am contracted to. I will continue to work when I have minor illnesses such as colds etc, however I must not work if I or if a member of the house hold has had vomiting and/or diarrhoea or any other highly contagious infection. Continuing to work would only result in a further spreading of the germs and I would be unable to give your child the care they deserve. A house hold member will be individually risk assessed to see if closure is necessary.

If closure is required, families will be refunded.

If an assistant leaves due to sickness/illness during the shift it may affect ratios so closure might be required. The assistant will not be paid for that shift if to having to leave and only SSP is applicable if eligible.

Therefore I follow the recommendations set out by the HPA / PHE & the spotty book regarding closures and time off.
