Gastroenteritis is an infection, which causes stomach upset. It may be caused by a number of different germs including viruses.

The main symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting nausea, abdominal pain and fever.

However, so as to minimise the further spread of infection at nursery and the overall amount of time children spend away, we may decide to exclude children, if more cases are diagnosed. The manager on duty will make this decision.
