Staying COVID Safe at The Infants’ Home

The health, safety and wellbeing of the children who attend our services, their families and our staff is of the utmost importance to us.

We are continuing to provide our early childhood education and care and family day care services as usual during the current lockdown, as early childhood services are considered to be essential services.

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it unfolds in Greater Sydney and are following all NSW Health Public Health Orders to deliver our essential services safely. This includes regular and thorough cleaning and sanitising of our premises, practicing physical distancing wherever possible and following guidelines for wearing face masks (the NSW Department of Education that masks are not mandatory for centre-based staff while working with children; however, staff who feel more comfortable wearing a mask may choose to do so). We have also halted all excursions, incursions and non-essential visits to our site.

Our face-to-face postnatal home visiting service has been temporarily suspended, but we are currently providing online and telephone consultations for parents and carers.

Our Community Playgroups and Parent Education programs that were due to commence at the beginning of Term 3 have been suspended due to the extended lockdown orders. We will advise our community when these programs can recommence via our website and social media.
