Warrawee Care Centre health resources outlines policies and procedures that are in place to help prevent the spread of many infectious diseases sourced from a relevant recognised authority. Educators assist children to take a growing responsibility for their own health and physical wellbeing, modelling and reinforcing health and personal hygiene. Our routines and experiences provide opportunities for children to learn about health and safety. Children are involved in developing guidelines and discussions around health keeping the environment safe for all.
During outbreaks of any infectious disease in the service a noticeboard will be placed in the foyer with a fact sheet or other information sourced from Staying Healthy in Child Care, 5th ed.
