Abstract

Staying healthy: preventing infectious diseases in early childhood education and care services provides educators and other staff working in education and care services with simple and effective methods for minimising the spread of disease.

The advice aims to reduce the risk of serious infections and infectious diseases spreading through child care centres to the children's families, the workers and the community.

The advice is presented in six parts:

  • concepts of infection control
  • monitoring illness in children
  • procedures
  • issues for employers, educators and other staff
  • fact sheets on diseases common to education and care services
  • forms, useful contacts and websites.

Please note that this guideline is best practice advice to help anyone caring for children make good decisions for children in their care, and not a new set of rules.

The advice contained within these guidelines is drawn from established guidelines that are regularly updated using the principles of evidence-based medicine.
