Comprehensive safety measures are fundamental to quality child programs. At the same time, overprotective measures must not stifle a stimulating and enjoyable environment. We strive to maintain a responsible balance and all staff are made aware of issues and areas requiring vigilant attention. The following outline assists staff in maintaining high standards of safety within the Centre:
# equipment is constantly checked by staff members for broken pieces, sharp edges etc.
# toys are free of small objects that can be detached, swallowed and/or inhaled
# outdoor areas are regularly checked for potential hazards
# swing areas are well supervised
# sandpits are kept clean, safe and are covered at night
# all electrical outlets are kept covered
# fans are shielded
# when attending to children on change tables, staff keep a firm hold on the child at all times
# cleaning chemicals and medication are clearly labelled and stored safely away from children.
