The Purpose of This Policy
This is a living document and can be altered or changed as more information and requirements become available.
The purpose of this proposed policy is to keep staff and students of The Maples Child Care Centre safe and help prevent cases of COVID-19 within the centre when we reopen. The policy will outline steps we will take to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the centre, protocol on how to screen for symptoms and steps to take if symptoms are observed or a case is discovered.
Child care centres must have written measures and procedures for staff safety, including measures and procedures for infection prevention and control.
As required child care centres must consider a single, symptomatic, laboratory confirmed case of COVID-19 in a staff member or child as a confirmed COVID-19 outbreak in consultation with the local public health unit. Outbreaks should be declared in collaboration between the centre and the local public health unit to ensure an outbreak number is provided.
All staff and parents must read this policy and sign off to acknowledge their understanding and compliance with the requirements of this policy.
