Partnership with families
18th May to 22nd May 2015
Dear Families,
As a part of the continuous improvement required by the National Quality Standard, this week we are:
 focusing on our hygiene procedures. One of the ways we can teach children about hygiene as well
as help them build relationships and life skills is to involve them in jobs like wiping tables and
setting up lunch. We constantly integrate learning about hygiene into all our activities and
experiences, including for example art and craft
 looking at the levels of salt in food, and how to reduce the amount of salt we eat to improve our
health and well being.
reviewing our Infectious Disease Policy and Health, Hygiene and Safe Food Policy. Summaries follow:
Infectious Disease Policy
