Kindy Policies

Policies

C&K and the Kindy have developed a range of policies to support educators in delivering the highest quality education and care for your child.

The Kindy has policies on many areas including:

Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) and Hygiene:

The Kindy follows policies and procedures to ensure a safe and hygienic environment for all who enter the service. Anyone doing work or spending time at the Kindy is required to read and sign the WHS booklet.

Photographs:

No mobile phone photos are permitted at Kindy. Only take photos of your own child at Kindy. If you wish to include other children in photos, parental permission should be sought. Photos using the Kindy camera can be shared with families, so please ask should you wish to capture a moment at Kindy.

Child protection:

The Kindy maintains a policy for child protection. Educators are familiar with the procedures required and training in child protection is regularly updated.

Each staff member is a mandatory reporter in relation to matters of child protection.

Illness:

Illnesses can spread quickly when groups of young children are in contact with each other. It is extremely difficult for educators to provide care for children who are ill and still care for the rest of the group. Please ask teaching staff or consult the medication policy for further advice on when to exclude an ill child.

If your child is suffering from vomiting or diarrhoea, regardless of the cause, they must be kept at home for 24 hours from the finish of the attack.

If your child becomes ill at Kindy you will be contacted to collect your child as soon as possible.

Accidents and First Aid:

All staff have current first aid certificates.

Records are kept if a child or adult is injured, or becomes ill whilst at Kindy. Parents or families are required to sign a form confirming they have been informed of the injury or illness by teaching staff.

In the event of a serious accident involving your child, every effort will be made to contact you or your emergency contact but if we can’t, a staff member will take whatever steps are considered to be necessary to ensure the child’s well being, including calling an ambulance.

Children’s medication:

Staff may only administer medication if prescribed by the child’s doctor. Families will need to complete a medication form. Ongoing medication may require a letter from the child’s doctor advising of the child’s condition.

Excursions and visitors:

We try to arrange for community visitors and performers to visit from time to time in accordance with C&K policy and regulations. The OEC requires an excursion note be signed for children to attend excursions and the required number of adult supervisors.
