When to Keep Your Child Home from Nursery
It is important to balance your child’s attendance with good decisions about his health. Many children suffer mild cold symptoms and are able to successfully attend the class. However, if your child is truly ill, it is important that he stays at home.
Do not give fever-reducing medicine and then send your child to the nursery, this may mask symptoms of a more serious condition.
To minimize the spread of infections please do not send your child to the nursery if they have:
A fever. Must be free from fever without the aid of medication for 24 hours.
A skin rash with fever.
Vomiting (not to return to the nursery for 48 hours after the last vomiting episode).
Diarrhea (not to return to the nursery for 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhea).
A heavy green nasal discharge.
A recurrent sore throat with fever.
Red, watery and painful eyes. Especially if there is a yellow discharge.
If your child has an infected sore or wound it must be covered by a dressing or plaster.
If your child is assessed by the Nurses and thought to be a possible source of infection to other children and staff, you will be contacted and asked to collect your child as soon as possible.
Do not leave any medication in your child’s bag.
If your child requires medication during the day at the nursery all medication must be handed over to the nursing team in the original packaging, labeled correctly and a medical consent form must be signed.
Updating your Child’s Vaccination Records
Kindly re-submit an updated vaccination record of your child. It is a requirement of DHA that you re-submit these records even if previously submitted.
We understand that you may follow the vaccine schedule of your home country, please see below for the recommended immunization schedule of the UAE.
Providing a healthy snack for children is important to give children the energy and nutrients needed for a full and fun day of learning and to establish better and healthier habits for later stage of their lives. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, and snacks high in protein and fiber, but low in fat, salt and sugar. Please provide a refillable water bottle for your child daily.
Cut food such as grapes and other fruits, meat, cheese and raw vegetables into small pieces and shapes that cannot be wedged in the airway, blocking it.
Nut Free Zone
Our nursery is a nut free zone. We don’t allow any nuts or products containing traces of nuts in the nursery grounds.
Remember No Flip Flops or Crocs to be worn. THEY ARE A TRIP HAZARD! Shoes and sandals should be well fitting, easy to fasten and comfortable.
We will always have extremely fond and treasured memories of our girls time at Children’s Oasis. The teachers are so creative and fun, always thinking of new ways to engage the children and the thoughtful and varied outdoor areas were always a favourite of theirs. We loved the intimate, friendly feel and all the little extras which makes it feel that you are part of a community. Thanks for everything, we really couldn’t have asked for a better start and we will miss you all.
What I love about Children's Oasis is how well looked after my children are and how comfortable they feel. They know the names of most of the staff and will always say 'hi' and often stop for a chat. It's a calm and nurturing environment.
We love children’s Oasis Nursery. It has been a part of our lives for over 8 years with both our girls going there. The staff are all amazing and really care for the children.
Que alegría haberlos encontrado! Estamos muy agradecidos de comenzar los años escoltarse de nuestra hija con su apoyo! Desde las maestras, hasta la directora y el ambiente de la escuela tuvimos una experiencia fenomenal y estamos entusiasmados de volver en Septiembre! Muchas gracias Children's Oasis!!!
Both my boys were at Children Oasis from the time they were 2 and until they were 4 years old; first attending the Spanish Programme and then, FS1. Both classes were great! The teachers are incredibly professional and caring. The communication with the parents is excellent and reports are detailed. They make learning fun and engaging for the kids who learn through hands-on activities and play. The facilities are beautiful with lots of stimulating and educational books and toys. I couldn't ask for more during those early years for my children!
