OUR KEY POLICIES

CHILD PROTECTION

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.

CONDITIONS OF ENROLMENT

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.

FEE POLICY

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

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.

PRIORITY OF ACCESS

PLC Sydney Preschools follow the Commonwealth Priority of Access Guidelines, as listed in the attached policy, when enrolling children. Your child’s wait list application will reflect these guidelines.

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

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

The 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.
