Working with Covid 19

The global impact of Covid-19 has changed daily life for all of us, yet childcare has never not stopped! Now more than ever we view supporting our children, families, and employees as vital.

Over the past 2 years we have learnt from and made meaningful changes to our operational procedures and practises to ensure the ongoing health, safety and wellbeing of our children, families, and employees.

 

Why is childcare so important to education and development of a child and how we support children during this challenging environment?

 

The early years of a child’s development are so important. This is when children are developing physical and emotional skills to help them transition to primary education and life!

We understand that routine, familiarity and consistency are important foundations for children to feel safe and secure.  We are therefore committed to providing a loving, nurturing and stable environment for all our children during this challenging time, while also providing high quality education and healthcare practises.

 

What we are doing to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our children, families and educators?

 

We ensure safety measures are in place to protect the health and safety of children, families and team members.

Our Covid policies are informed by the Victorian Government and Early Childhood Education and Care Department of Education Departments. We continue to comply with all public health directors and legislation so that we are placing safety first.

Some of our Covid Safe practices include:

 

Keeping our families informed

 

As changes arise, we communicate quickly to our families and employees. This includes notifying families as soon as a Covid positive case is identified and providing clear management practices.
