Oh no! One of our lovely children has chicken pox - we wish them a speedy recovery. Keep an eye out on your children over the next 10 days or so (this is the incubation period) and let us know if they too develop chicken pox. Children need to be kept at home until all the sores have scabbed over to avoid the spread of the disease. Here is a link to a Kidshealth which has information about the symptoms and treatment for chickenpox.
