How does Childcare cater for babies?
To ensure the comfort and safety of babies (6wks – walking), they are cared for in a separate area within the facility. Bottles and baby food can be given to babies upon request, however should be given by the parents where possible.
Can I use Childcare if my child is sick?
Sick children are not permitted to attend Childcare, exceptions may be made at the discretion of child care staff. Any child who has a contagious illness or is taking medication (Panadol, antibiotics, etc) is not permitted to attend Childcare.
A Medical Clearance is required to return to Childcare after a contagious illness.
If a school aged child isn’t able to go to school for any reason including sickness, they may not attend Childcare during school hours.
Who can use Childcare?
The Childcare facility is for children of CHF patrons only and only when they are using CHF facilities, pool or Wellness Centre.
Parents may visit the RSL Café /Juice Bar after using CHF Facilities providing they do not exceed the allocated childcare time. Other children, e.g. friends children, nieces, nephews etc. must be paid for as a casual visit. Individual members must be on the premises at all times while their children are in Childcare.
Parents with a child in swimming lessons may only use Childcare for other children if the parents are personally in the water for the lesson.
Can I provide food for my child?
Certainly, parents are encouraged to bring healthy food and drinks for their children (fruit, sandwiches, water, etc), excluding any nut products. Please label all drinks and lunch boxes.
What if my child is upset while at Childcare?
If children are upset or crying and continue to be distressed we will notify the parents and they must return to their children. For this reason parents are required to inform staff where in the centre they will be.
