Does my child need to be immunised to attend the Centre?

Yes, it is a legal requirement that children attending the Centre are immunised according to the government schedule.  You will be asked upon enrolment and periodically during attendance to provide copies of immunisation details.  If your child has not been immunised for a specific reason, please contact the Centre Coordinator to discuss.

What if my child requires medication to be administered whilst he/she is in care?

The Centre adheres to the Children’s Services Regulations in relation to the issuing of medication and will only do so in accordance with Doctors instructions.  If your child has a chronic illness which may require ongoing medication (such as asthma or similar), please contact the Centre Coordinator to discuss arrangements.

Can I send my child to care when they are ill?

In most cases you will not be able to send your child to care whilst they are ill, particularly where the nature of the illness is infectious.  The Centre is guided by the government guidelines on exclusion periods for illnesses, during which time you will need to arrange alternative care for your child.
