OUR KEY POLICIES
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
The safety, protection and well-being of all students is of fundamental importance to PLC Sydney Preschools. Both staff and the preschool have a range of different obligations relating to the safety, protection and welfare of its students as outlined in the policy.
ENROLMENT AND ORIENTATION POLICY AND PRIORITY OF ACCESS
This document outlines all the terms and conditions of enrolment that must be agreed to before your child can be enrolled at PLC Sydney Preschools.
We understand that parents make a huge investment in their children’s care and education. The PLC Preschool Fee Policy provides guidance about all the fees and payment requirements for families involved in the Preschools.
MEDICAL CONDITIONS POLICY
PLC Sydney Preschools is committed to a planned approach to the management of medical conditions to ensure the safety and well-being of all children at the preschool. Clear procedures support the enrolment of children and families with specific health care requirements.
PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY POLICY
The PLC Sydney Preschool requires personal information from families to provide appropriate and responsive care. We respect the importance of privacy and confidentiality as an individual right and a basis for building partnerships.
ADMINISTRATION OF FIRST AID POLICY
The PLC Sydney Preschool requires the highest standards of competency in regard to First Aid. First Aid can preserve life, prevent a condition from worsening and promote recovery. The capacity to provide prompt basic first aid is particularly important in the context of an early childhood service where staff have a duty of care to take positive steps towards maintaining the health and safety of each child.
INJURY, INCIDENT, TRAUMA AND ILLNESS POLICY
PLC Sydney Preschools have policies and procedures (including documented records) that must be in place to effectively manage the event of any incident injury, trauma and illness that occurs in the service. Young children’s innate desire to explore and test their growing capabilities is essential in developing wellbeing.
EMERGENCY AND EVACUATION POLICY
The PLC Sydney Preschool is committed to identifying risks and hazards of emergency and evacuation situations, and planning for their reduction or minimisation, and ongoing review of planned actions around handling these situations.
INFECTIOUS DISEASES POLICY
PLC Sydney Preschools treats infectious diseases extremely seriously. The way that children interact with each other and with adults in education and care services means that diseases can quickly spread in a variety of ways. Whilst it is not possible to prevent the spread of all infections and diseases, minimising the risk is our priority.
COMPLAINTS AND GRIEVANCES HANDLING POLICY
PLC Sydney Preschool affirms that people have a right to question and influence decisions made and services provided. We take complaints seriously and manage them in a confidential, timely, transparent and meaningful way. We recognise that families, educators, other staff and the community need to feel confident that any concerns or issues they may raise will be handled promptly and professionally.
