Anaphylaxis is a severe and sudden allergic reaction and is potentially life threatening. It needs immediate treatment and urgent medical attention. The most common allergens in children are eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, cow's milk, fish and shellfish, wheat, soy, certain insect stings and medications.  If your child is diagnosed as at risk of anaphylaxis, please inform us as soon as possible.  We require an action plan developed by your child's doctor, along with your child's medicaion including an EpiPen®  or EpiPenjunior®.
