We hope to find you well and coping with the challenges that continue to present during these unprecedented times. We also hope you are finding some positives and joy as we move into the next phase of managing COVID-19. We appreciate there is some return to life before COVID-19, however it is also essential that we continue to be vigilant in our procedures and practices to reduce the opportunity for any spread at our services.
We continue to receive regular updates and information from NSW Health, and communication from our governing body regarding the best way to prevent any infection at our Centres. We reflect on our service procedures after receiving any information, and continue to ensure we have the best practices in place for the safety of our children, families and educators.
We have updated our Risk Assessment Plan as advised by the department. If you would like to view this updated plan, please contact your centre Director. Our Risk Assessment outlines our plan to support the need to socially distance. It is impossible for us to support this suggestion at all times in an Early Childhood setting with the needs of our children being our priority, but we are mindful of the importance, and we do ask our families to help by minimising the time spent in classrooms where possible. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to email your centre Director and arrange a time for us to call you and discuss over the phone.
