Health & Safety
Our Commitment to Health & Safety
The health and safety of children, families, and our team are our top priority. Our policies relating to all health & safety practices have been informed by the relevant state and federal health regulatory bodies, respective early childhood education and care departments, and the Department of Education.
Our campuses are set up to provide a safe, nurturing, and consistent environment for your children.
Health & Safety Policies and Procedures
As an early childhood education and care provider, we deal with important little people who need the best start in life. That means a fun, friendly, caring and, above all, safe environment.
At Only About Children, we pride ourselves on our high health and safety standards and our underpinning policies and procedures which are guided by the National Quality Standards and governing regulatory bodies in each state.
We aim to go beyond compliance with all relevant legislation and work towards best practice to ensure a safe environment for all.
All Only About Children campuses across Australia continue to undertake COVID-19 safety measures to protect the health and safety of children, families, employees and the wider community. It’s important to us that we provide an environment where everyone feels comfortable, safe and happy.
We continue to comply with all public health directives and legislation to protect the health and safety, and reduce the risk of COVID-19, for everyone that attends our campuses and Support Offices. These directives can vary significantly state-by-state.
To ensure we can keep our campuses as safe as possible, the following measures are in place
- Adherence to state-by-state public health orders and enforceable government directions relating to vaccinations and testing for employees and visitors
- Enhanced ventilation at every campus and utilising air purifiers where required
- Additional cleaning and sanitising of campus environments daily
- Increased outdoor play
- Teaching and practising of health and hygiene practises with children
