The health and Safety of children and our educators is a top priority. Our educators all have current First Aid Certificates and we have a number of policies and procedures to ensure the safety of both children and staff.
Our holistic methods and strategies support and manage:
children with ongoing health problems, such as asthma, diabetes, anaphylaxis and allergies
Controlling the spread of infectious illnesses through good hygiene is an important practice that our educators practice follow and model to children. Children are supported in understanding techniques such as correct hand washing and learning to perform them independently.
We practice Sun Smart recommendations made by the Cancer Council Western Australia. These include planning daily routines to coincide with when children should not be in the sun, and ensuring children are protected when in the sun with appropriate clothing, sunscreen, hat and hydration.
The centre promotes dental care by:
Encouraging healthy eating habits.
Offering water after lunch and to quench thirst.
Incorporating information on dental health practices in the centre program for staff, children and parents
