Childcare Settings Infection Prevention and Control

Health Protection Scotland has produced a national guidance document on the prevention and control of infection in childcare settings. This guidance was updated in 2018. The guidance is for childminders and staff working within nurseries, day-care centres, playgroups, crèches, children’s centres, after-school and holiday clubs. It should also be used by staff involved in all outdoor activities for children.
