To ensure that staff always supervise children while attending the centre. To promote the health, safety and well-being of the children always. To ensure children at Little Feet Childcare Centre are in a safe, caring environment and are protected from physical, emotional and sexual abuse. Children’s Wellbeing and Safety is Always our Primary Concern.
Baby/toddler room 0 – 24 months will require 1 Teacher to 5 children and Children over 2 years to 5 years will require 1 Teacher to 10 children however we will have 1 teacher for every 4 children under 2’s and an 1 teacher to every 8 children over 2’s to ensure a smooth operation of the Centre ensuring ratios are maintained for lunch cover, non-contact time or meal breaks. Lunch hours will be for 30 minutes each and meal breaks will be 10 minutes each after every 4 hours of work. Non-Contact hours will depend on the teachers and there will always be additional staffs to cover for them on the floor.
We will also have a pool of relievers when staffs are on holidays or call in sick to ensure that a fully trained person always remains on the floor. A child who becomes unwell during the day will be isolated in the area provided for this purpose and will always be supervised until the child’s is picked up by the family.
