COVID19 Information

Elite Family Day Care is committed to keeping you safe during these uncertain times. Find useful information below regarding COVID19.

Changes To Our Services - COVID19

Elite Family Day Care service take our educators, families, children and staff's health and wellbeing very seriously. As per government recommendations, all our services have COVID-19 risk assessments in place. These risks are updated and revised as the situation evolves or government recommendations change.

Additionally, our service staff complete a service risk assessment for staff conducting onsite support and compliance visits, with this document reviewed and altered as needed.

Whether there is a pandemic or not, educators, staff and children are required to provide medical certificates to ensure they are fit for care or work. This allows us to protect each child, educator and staff member whilst reducing the risk of spread for various communicable diseases. Educators are required to have hand hygiene practices in place all year round. You will also now notice the addition of sanitizing stations upon entry. This is an extra precaution we are taking to protect everyone in and around our services.

Extraordinary Care Arrangements

Our family day care services across Perth and Western Australia are uniquely positioned to operate from the homes of our educators. It is for this very reason we may be able to offer extended care arrangements for families needing support during these times. It is also for this reason we ask all parents, families and visitors to follow requests of individual educators relating to the health and safety of their home. As this is an evolving situation, we are continually working to get new information to you.
