Childcare during COVID

To ensure that we are able to keep our families, children and our team members safe and healthy we have implemented a range of strategies to further reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19.

Our COVID-safe practice includes:
  • Rapid Antigen Tests are conducted twice a week for all staff members
  • All staff members are fully vaccinated and will be wearing a mask at all times indoor
  • Temperature checks are taken every morning upon entry for children
  • Wellness checks for everyone entering the building to ensure they are symptom free. Anyone with symptoms is to remain at home.
  • Drop-offs and pick-ups are conducted outside the Centre to avoid people grouping close together.
  • Appropriate physical distancing for adults where possible.
  • Regular cleaning of surfaces and rooms by professional cleaners using COVID certified anti-viral cleaners
  • Increased outdoor activities where possible, and indoors, increasing ventilation with open windows and fans.
  • We are working to reduce the grouping of children from different rooms and age groups.
  • Hand sanitising stations and antiseptic wipes placed throughout the centre.

While these are challenging circumstances for all of us, Little Friends Early Learning is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for our children, families and staffs to prevent the spread of COVID.
