Yarra Warra Preschool Covid Safe Plan

January/February 2022

(Source: current regulations in accordance with the Department of Education guidelines)

 

Staggered entry:

 

At each session parents must sign-in their child in the enrolment book (name on left and right hand sides/sign in the column next to your child's name), sanitise hands, QR and wear a mask.

 

Parents are welcome to come into the Kinder room, place their child's drink bottle on the trolley, find their child’s locker for their Kinder bag and settle their child inside at an activity.

 

Once your child is settled, we encourage parents to leave. Less people in the preschool environment reduces the risk of infection.

 

At the end of the session staff will "sign-out" your child to reduce transmission.

 

No parent helpers in the Kinder room in the next month.

 

Sick children to not attend Kinder. All absences to be communicated to their child’s teacher.

 

We encourage communication between family and preschool via email to reduce transmission.

 

Staff to wear mask but can remove to articulate or communicate when teaching.

 

Staff will R.A.T twice weekly. Parents to let staff know if their child tests positive or is isolating due to a household member testing positive.

 

Y-W preschool encourages 5-year-old children and older to vaccinate where possible.

 

Y-W preschool has had an air purifier installed over the holidays to ensure adequate ventilation indoors and will extend outdoor learning to ensure best practise
