25 Sep Covid 19 Guidelines for Early Childhood Education
The NSW government have published guidelines to help early childhood education and care (ECEC) services prepare for, prevent and manage an outbreak of COVID-19.
Unlike with colds and flu, small children don’t seem to be as severely affected by COVID-19. They also don’t appear to contribute significantly to disease spread. Transmission of COVID-19 has mainly been from adult to adult.
ECEC services should feel confident that increasing hygiene practices and social distancing at their service will help prevent the spread.
The information and actions below help ECEC services prepare for, prevent and manage a potential outbreak of COVID-19. They apply to all service types unless otherwise specified.
