FOR OUR COMMUNITIES

A Guide to Navigating the New Rhythms of the Workplace

As enrolment numbers of children increase, control measures are adjusted to manage the change. For instance families are now permitted to enter the child’s room and participate in their birthday celebrations within the service but we encourage them to do a quick drop off and pick up. We have now recommenced incursions, but excursions have been put on hold.

Routinely communication and consultation with all educators about any modifications or updates to current policies or procedures are in place to account for the pandemic conditions – (COVID-19 Safe Management Plan, Arrival and Departure Policy, Health and Safety Policy, Control of Infectious Diseases Policy, Incident, Illness, Accident & Trauma Policy, Hand Washing Policy)

We maintain regular consultation with educators about current work, health and safety measures implemented and any changes or additions that may need to be made to ensure the safety for all educators

More protocols we do…

We encourage parents to not have long communication/interaction with other families, educators or other adults (and use alternative methods of communication such as phone, Educa app, email). Consideration is given to families for whom English is their second language and written information translated. Consideration is made to avoid families queuing in car park and causing traffic congestion.

Families who are front line workers (doctors, nurses) are requested to have changed from their work uniform after completing their shift before collecting their child.

If families require face to face communication ensure physical distancing measures are implemented and limit the time of the interaction/discussion where possible.

Clear guidelines provided to contractors when visiting the service regarding physical distancing, hygiene protocols and child protection • handwashing facilities are provided to contractors to ensure they wash their hands thoroughly upon arrival, wipe any equipment with disinfectant wipes
