I mind two children, mum of 17 month old texted to say she's keeping him off as he has conjunctivitis (I suspected last night), other parents if 12 month old I mind will wonder where he is, can I tell them why he isn't here?

I often do mention another child is off sick and with what as it helps join the dots if Lo starts having symptoms.. But I don't know is there confidetiality issues in the uk? More relaxed here!

I write on my noticeboard...... A child in my care has been diagnosed with (whatever the infectious illness is) .
I do not mention name of child, that's confidential, but usually parents can work out who it is as we only have a few children in our care.
Parents are then allerted to watch out for signs and symptoms in their child.
