Minor Illnesses

We have a few minor ailments around at the moment- these conditions do not necessarily put your child at risk but could put pregnant mothers at risk Please see a healthcare professional if you have any worries.

We have few cases of chickenpox- children need to be off school / nursery until the spots have formed scabs

We have a few cases of Hand, Foot and Mouth- we do not need to ask children to be off nursery but would advise that you seek advice from a healthcare professional

We also have a few cases of Slap-Cheek- again we do not need to ask children to stay at home but please seek advice from a healthcare professional if you are worried about your child or the risk to yourself.

It is quite common for a number of minor ailments to arise at this time of year as temperatures drop and the children join a group setting for the first time. We always promote hand-washing and good hygiene which is the best measure we can take to prevent ailments from spreading.

Welcome to Eastwood. We provide Roehampton with a wide range of services for very young children and their families.

At the heart of the community

Central to Roehampton, on main bus routes and a short walk from the library, the shops and the Roehampton Primary Schools, we are well located to support and serve local families seeking early childhood services, nursery education and childcare.

We are specialists in working with babies, young children and their families and aim to offer a warm welcome and high quality services.

In order to make our services as accessible as possible we provide weekly groups in the heart of Putney Vale, the Lennox and the Alton Estates – you can get specialist advice from a Health Visitor, have your baby weighed and have fun playing with your child, all at the same time!

With the community at heart

Eastwood works tirelessly to involve everyone caring for young children in Roehampton. We provide a wide range of services from well-baby clinics to adult education, with plenty of play in between!

Our parenting programmes are evidence-based and delivered by experienced and trained staff. Our outreach team and family support service aim to help families feel at home in the community and access support services and entitlements such as nursery education.

Our open play sessions help parents focus on their children’s early learning and development and provide practical ideas for activities to do at home. Our Family Learning Programme is accredited by the Open College Network and builds on your expertise as a parent.

From babies through to children about to start primary school, we have nursery care and education packages available to suit all families’ needs.

Our passion for first hand-experiences and the natural world means that children safely go out into the local community to explore the environment, use public transport and be part of the Roehampton Community.
