A key message for any pre-school caring for children with allergies is to set up good lines of communication. All parents should be asked for information about allergies before their child starts pre-school. Then a management plan can be set up for each individual child with allergies, with their help of their parents and doctor. The BSACI has management plan templates available to download from its website.
The Anaphylaxis Campaign has produced a special fact sheet, “Guidance about Anaphylaxis for Carers of Pre-School Children attending Early-Years Settings.” You can find this on Our Factsheets page in the “Anaphylaxis – General advice and information” section.
Our AllergyWise anaphylaxis online training course for parents and carers of pre-school children provides a sound understanding of the care and management of a very young severely allergic child.
