In accordance with Government guidance regarding Coronavirus (COVID–19), we are currently prioritising the safety of our community and staff and assessing the risk posed by all events, activities and programs. Please check back regularly for updates and cancellations.
We are closely following all advice provided by the Federal and State health authorities. Please follow all Government guidelines regarding social distancing, self-isolation and personal hygiene.
In light of this, we have modified our vacation care programs. We encourage all staff and children to follow recommended hygiene procedures including sneezing and coughing etiquette and handwashing practices. Centre staff will intentionally teach and actively promote correct hygiene practices at every opportunity with the children. We will have hand sanitiser available to families at the entrance to each service to use as you enter and leave the premises. We will be asking parents/carers to ensure that their hands are clean before using the iPad to electronically sign in/out and to sanitise the iPad after they sign in/out with wipes provided.
We have increased the cleaning regimes with the services and have removed sensory play experiences to further reduce risks.
As recommended by NSW Health we will advise families and staff not to attend the service if they are sick with influenza/cold-like symptoms, even if they are mild. If a staff member or child becomes ill while they are at the service, they will be asked to go home immediately.
