2.1 Health & Hygiene

We observe strict health and hygiene practices as required by the relevant government departments regarding current standards. These standards are maintained to minimise health risks to children and educators in our centre.

Every now and then children become ill, however we try to minimise the spread of any infections by good hygiene practices and we also endeavour to exclude any children with suspected infectious conditions.

A doctor’s clearance must be obtained before a child with a contagious illness may return to the centre.

Handbook Pinnochio

On enrolment you will be required to provide a copy of your child’s immunisation records. For the health and wellbeing of the children in care, non-immunised children will be excluded from care during outbreaks of preventable infectious diseases. Non-immunisation will affect your government subsidy. Speak to our Director about our Immunisation Policy.
