Dear Families, TG’s Child Care strive to implement stringent hygiene and cleaning measures throughout our services to support the health and well-being of all children, families, educators and the community. We remain up to date with information and recommendations from the Australian Government- Department of Health, Department of Education, Skills and Employment on a daily basis, and continue to implement the following practices for our educators, children and families:
Continuing to supervise all handwashing times with children in each room, and guiding children to learn the correct handwashing technique
Implementing mandatory quarantine periods on return for all staff and families who have travelled to and from specific areas (please see our Coronavirus policy for further information)
We have provided multiple hand sanitising stations throughout all of our campuses, including the foyer and each classroom. Please ensure both children and families utilise these upon arrival and departure.
Joeys room requires all children, educators and families to remove their shoes prior to entry
Multiple daily infection control measure such as disinfecting frequently touches surfaces/objects
Our Community Approach outlines in further detail with reference to the most reputable and trusted sources additional procedures/practices and recommendations to support the safety and well-being of all children, educators, families and community members. As families of children in our care, these following points are very important for you to know and follow to help us keep all of our children, families and educators safe and well:
If your child is experiencing any cold and flu like symptoms, such as fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny and/or stuffy nose please do not bring your child to TG’s Child Care until the above symptoms have subsided.
Although we have very thorough hygiene practices and have implemented extra measures into place, coughing and sneezing in particular will send germs into the air and onto other children and educators easily. If your child is experiencing these symptoms while in care, we will call you to come and collect your child.
If you are coughing, sneezing or have any other flu like symptoms, we strongly advise you to not come into our service to drop off or collect your child. Please organise an alternate authorised contact to drop off and/or collect.
