In our services we are practicing social distancing as much as possible with some social distancing games and play. We are able to participate in team sports with multiple children and play with balls, cricket bats etc.
We have strict hand hygiene in place. Children wash their hands on arrival, before and after eating, and every thirty minutes. Educators also wash their hands every thirty minutes.
We are thrilled to be able to again use playgrounds and will spend as much time outdoors as possible for a COVIDsafe Summer!
We are able to enjoy incursions across the country. In Victoria this summer there remain no excursions due to the slower easing of restrictions following the second wave. In all other states, excursions will be enjoyed by all children who attend our Excursion Days this summer! Excursions will return in Victoria for the next holiday period.
Our teams remain vigilant in our hygiene practices, cleaning surfaces including but not limited to: benchtops, backs of chairs, light switches, taps, door handles, etc. All high touch points are cleaned prior to the start of each service, at the end of the service and during delivery of service.
Throughout this pandemic, the health and safety of our children, families and staff has been our top priority. This will continue beyond Summer. For now, we wish our families a safe and happy holiday period and look forward to enjoying our COVIDsafe Summer at Extend!
Effective 15 December 2020
