If my child is sick
As stated in our Illness Policy and the consent you have provided in the Enrolment Form, children are not to be brought to the Centre when they are unwell and/or suffering any condition that is capable of being transmitted to other children. Please keep children at home if they show any of these symptoms – High temperature, unidentified rash, inflamed throat, sore/red eyes, upset stomach. Ministry of Health Regulations state that children can return to the Centre 48 hours after symptoms reside. We would appreciate a phone call to inform us of any sickness or absence.
If your child is able to return to the Centre, but is on medication, we can assist with this. The medication register must be filled out and signed by parents every day that medication is required. For long term medication, such as asthma, you can fill in a Medication Action Plan which give authority to staff to administer when required.
The Centre shall be entitled, in the event of a medical emergency to seek appropriate medical advice or treatment as they consider necessary in the best interests of the child and if necessary, to take the child to hospital in an ambulance. The Centre shall immediately contact the parent and/or emergency contact in the event of an unwell child requiring medical treatment. The parent and/or emergency contact will be required to collect the child as soon as possible.
Who can pick up my child?
Children may only leave the Centre with:
- Adults listed on the enrolment form (with photo identification), or;
- With an adult whose name and relationship to the child has been made known to the Centre (in writing) by parents, prior to picking up the child.
The Centre must be made aware of any custodial issues and confidentially will be maintained at all times.
The Centre is licensed by The Ministry of Education until 6 pm Monday to Friday and must close strictly at this time. Your child must be collected no later than this. Please contact the Centre if due to unforeseen circumstances you are unable to collect your child prior to the Centre closing. A fee of $1 per minute (after 6:00pm) will be added to your account.
