COVID-19

The centre has adopted the Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines and will be following all advice issued by the Ministry of Education (MOE) / MOH / NZ Government.

Current MOE guidelines state that there is no need to close the centre as there are only a few cases of COVID-19 and none related to small children.

Prevent the Spread

  • Do you feel unwell?
  • Do you have any of these symptons:
    • Cough
    • Fever
    • Breathing difficulties
  • Have been overseas in the last 14 days?
  • Are you close to someone diagnosed with COVID-19?

If YES PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THE CENTRE.

Call 0800 358 5453 for free advice from a health professional.

Preventing the risk

At the centre the most important thing we can do to prevent infection is to practice good hygiene. This means:

  • covering coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues
  • disposing of used tissues appropriately in a bin
  • coughing/sneezing into your elbow – we will be demonstrating this technique to our kids and encouraging them to use it
  • washing hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water and drying them thoroughly:
    • before eating or handling food
    • after using the toilet
    • after coughing, sneezing, blowing nose or wiping children’s noses
    • after touching public surfaces
  • using hand sanitiser between hand washing
  • disinfecting surfaces

At the centre we have checked out civil defense kit and first aide kits are well stocked and up-to-date.

We have stocked up on disinfectant, hand sanitiser and paper towels and ensuring that the centre is well ventilated.
