My child has scarlet fever and is being treated with an antibiotic. Can she/he go to the nursery?

In principle, you must not shorten the prescribed therapy duration (administration of medication). If antibiotics have already been administered for 48 hours and your child is fever-free and fit, he or she may return to the nursery. Scarlet fever is only required to be reported in some federal states, not in Brandenburg. Nevertheless, you should inform your childcare facility.
