Coronavirus Update - as at 23/09/2020

Eastside Early Learning is open and we will remain open

Due to the impacts of COVID-19, some businesses and workplaces have sadly been forced to close,  We want to reassure our community that Eastside Early Learning is open and that we will remain open as normal to service our community in accordance with current Government requirements.

The health and safety of our families and staff is our paramount priority. We ask all our families and staff, that if they or a member of their household is unwell or are experiencing flu-like symptoms to please stay home and immediately get tested.

We apply the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene across our service. We are diligent in our health and hygiene practices and continue to clean, sanitise and hand wash thoroughly and regularly throughout the day. We continuously educate and support our families and staff to be vigilant, practice regular hand washing, use hand sanitiser, cover sneezes or coughs with their arm. We have professional cleaners undertaking a thorough clean of the entire centre every weekend.

Under Government direction, Eastside Early Learning will continue to operate as normal and service our community. When there are new public health alerts, we review and assess the situation and update our Covid-19 preparedness and management plan.

We are open from 6.00am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.

We will continue to deliver our long day care services and our approved kindergarten programs to families in our community. We will continue to work with Government Authorities and keep our families informed if any changes occur.
