In the event of an illness
If your children are not in good health, they will not be admitted into KidsWorld. We have strict rules applying to this as staff and children are in a confined space.
If your child has any of the following you must not bring them into contact with the facility. Please keep your baby/child at home if he/she is suffering from:
- a heavy cold
- Diarrhoea in the previous 24 hours
- Vomiting in the previous 24 hours
- any infectious disease
- High temperature
- Major injuries in the previous 24 hours (such as broken bones, stitches etc)
In the case of infectious illness such as chicken pox, measles, mumps etc, or for conditions such as head lice, impetigo (school sores) and such, children will not be permitted entry to KidsWorld until such time as the condition is completely cleared and the risk of infection
to others is cleared. Should your child contract such an illness or condition, please notify staff so that we may alert other crèche users.
World Gym Maitland reserves the right to refuse entry to any children.
Please note: if your school age child is too sick to attend school, they are too sick to come into Kidsworld
No medication will be administered in our KidsWorld. If a child requires medication for an ongoing condition such as asthma, allergies etc……., please ensure that you manage this personally.
Delivery and collection of children
Parents/Guardians must sign each child in individually each time they use the service.
On arrival you must sign each child in on the Sign In Register and state your location whilst exercising. This is essential information in the event you are required to care for your
child or for an emergency evacuation. The parent/guardian must sign out their child before leaving.
Every parent must remain on the premises and be contactable at all times, please remember parents/guardians are responsible for the care of the child, such as, if called to KidsWorld you must return immediately (failure to do so may result in suspension of service).
No parent is to leave World Gym Maitland premises at any time whilst any of their children are in the KidsWorld.
Due to the increasing prevalence of allergies, please be aware that Kidsworld is strictly a
Nut Free Zone. Please ensure that you thoroughly check ingredients of all pre-packaged
food. We encourage healthy eating and recommend fruit, vegetables, sandwiches and healthy snacks.
Muesli bars are not allowed.
IF YOUR CHILD IS ANAPHYLACTIC, PLEASE BRING YOUR EMERGENCY ACTION PLAN FOR OUR RECORDS
Behaviour Management/Positive Guidance
Our staff members are not the child’s parents. Our aim with discipline is to maintain control of the group. Our staff will ensure that they convey the limits of our KidsWorld to your children in a positive manner. We will always try and diffuse a situation.
All staff speak in a positive manner to the children. We encourage children through positive role modelling and clear guidelines should a child need any behavioural management. Please note: if a child becomes disruptive or difficult, the parent/guardian will be collected and asked to calm their child.
Emergency care – Procedure
- One staff member immediately attends to the child to console and comfort and if a. necessary administers first aid.
- Another staff member will be elected to collect the parent/guardian and/or medical a. assistance and will bring that person back to the KidsWorld.
- The crèche supervisor must ensure that the incident/injury report is completed.
- N.B. If any of the KidsWorld staff notice a cut or bruise on a child when signing in, it will be brought to the attention of the parent/guardian. This ensures that it has been identified and no responsibility will be placed on the staff. If a child starts regularly rubbing an eye or other area or seems slightly upset or uncomfortable, the parent guardian will be collected.
Parents/guardians who have concerns or feedback regarding our KidsWorld should approach the KidsWorld Supervisor or Club Manager. Minor concerns will be dealt with immediately. Complaints that are of greater concern need to be addressed with the Club Manager. If necessary, the Club Manager, KidsWorld Supervisor and parent concerned may meet to discuss the situation.
