Post subject: Another nit related question r.e nursery
Sorry for the second thread relating to head lice. It is 99% likely liams caught them from nursery as him and his brother haven't been in contact with anyone else who could have thenm except from there. They don't start back at nursery til next Monday, by which time I am hoping he will be rid of them all but should I notify the nursery that he has caught them from another child there? I know at school parents usually write a note but dunno if telling his keyworker would make any difference as not sure if they still send letters out to parents like they do at the school x

In our nursery if someone has had nits they put notices on the door and noticeboard. Its very discreet...no names, details of child or even what room they incident happened in (there are various rooms in our nursery depending on age of child). They just tell you that a case of head lice has been found and for parents to check over thier own childs head.
It is ni our contract though that kids with head lice cant attend nursery until they are clear from infection so they might bring this up with you.
Its just curtious to let them know I think so they can let others know, most kids catch them at some time or other so its no biggie these days. Ooooh I cant bear the thought of finding them in my LO's hair, I never had them but the thought of creepies in my head makes me feel weird hahah!

I think they're all but gone now, can't find any adults lice or eggs, just tiny lice which I'm assuming are dead but I've been picking them out every chance I get and he'll be getting another round of lice treatment on sunday so I don't think hell be posing any risk when he goes to nursery
