Leicestershire Healthy Tots


Leicestershire Healthy Tots
Lets Go


Leicestershire Healthy Tots Programme is an early years health promotion programme designed to encourage settings to promote healthy lifestyles as well as becoming health promoting environments. It was based on the National Healthy Schools model as well as similar tried and tested programmes for under-fives, established in other parts of the UK.

Guidance on Infection Control in Schools and other Childcare Settings - PHE

Public Health England (PHE) has produced a document that provides guidance for schools and other childcare settings, such as nurseries, on infection control issues. It is an updated version of guidance that was produced in 2010. Prevent the spread of infections by ensuring: routine, immunisation, high standards of personal hygiene and practice, particularly hand washing and maintaining a clean environment


Or download a poster detailing information on exclusion periods for children suffering from infectious diseases that we hope will act as a quick and easy reference guide.



All three- and four-year-olds – and the 40% most disadvantaged two-year-olds – in England are currently eligible for funded early years provision for 15 hours per week, 38 weeks of the year. In September 2017, this will increase to 30 hours per week for three and four-year-olds from working families.  Read More
