Health and safety

General care

At Kora Childcare Centre, a child’s safety is important to us. So, we trained our team to be aware of children’s health and safety.

  • Upon the enrolment we ask some questions regarding your child’s allergies and dietary requirements. Base on the information given by families we create a list and provide it to the room. As a result, every member of our team knows exactly what every child is able to eat.
  • Every team member has access to the children’s information regarding dietary requirement, allergenic, cultural, and medical requirements.
  • Our entrance is monitored all the time by one of our team members to keep record of everyone arriving at our center.
  • We will not release your child to anyone without your written permission.
  • All team members have current Working With Children Check.
  • We apply sunscreen to children before going outside and reapply again after 2 hours.
