Pink eye is conjunctivitus and I exclude as I had a bad experience of it spreading amongst the smaller ones due to them rubbing their eyes etc. I don't think you have to exclude but it's personal choice.

I tend to follow our local nursery and school policy. They can attend once they have seen doctor and started treatment.

I think as long as they're being treated then you can't exclude them??
