Baby Sensory & Toddler Sense COVID-19 Update

By March 13, 2020 Toddlers

We know how much we want to love our babies and toddlers and ensure their safety and well being.

This is our response to this virus at this stage.

At Baby Sensory and Toddler Sense Australia and New Zealand our primary concern is the safety of our parents, babies, toddlers and class leaders.

 

As such we are continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation and the guidance and advice supplied by the Australian Government, the New Zealand Government, the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local health authorities.

 

As the situation is changing almost daily, and to avoid providing potentially out of date information, please follow the latest advice on the following websites, as we do, where you can find the most up to date information and guidance, including the self-isolation requirements –

 

Australia – https://www.health.gov.au/

New Zealand – https://www.health.govt.nz/
World Health Organisation – https://www.who.int/

 

 

We are passionate about maintaining our high standard of cleanliness and hygiene in our classes and will continue to be vigilant with our cleaning in class.

 

Examples of our high standards include –

 

  • – all props used in activities are cleaned between each class and equipment is offered to you from a bucket or basket to minimise the number of people who touch it, helping to prevent potential cross-contamination

 

  • – everything in our exploratory play area is cleaned regularly – ball pool balls, fabrics, toys, instruments – you name it, we wash it! Our washing lines are a colourful sight.

 

  • – all hard plastics in our exploratory play area are cleaned daily as a minimum, and often more frequently between classes.  We also request that any excessively mouthed items are given to the Class Leader so they can ensure they are cleaned immediately.

 

If you would like more details of how we clean and maintain our equipment please ask your class leader.

 

We would also like to take the opportunity to reiterate our standard hygiene policy and ask that you please stay at home if either you or your child are unwell in any way.

 

In addition, as best practice, we ask that all families either wash their hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser upon arrival at their Baby Sensory or Toddler Sense class.

 

Thank you for your continuing support.
