Frequently Asked Questions

Enrolments

For each child, a completed enrolment form, an up to date Immunisation History Statement and any relevant action plans must be provided prior to attending child care.  This information authorises staff to act in case of an emergency.

Signing In/Out

It is necessary to sign your child/children in/out upon each visit. A person collecting your child other than yourself must be registered on your enrolment form. Where the pick up person is not registered formally in writing by the child’s parent or guardian, the child will not be released. 

Anaphylaxis, Allergies and Asthma

The Casey ARC Child Care has children that attend with severe allergies and life threatening anaphylaxis. Due to this we have a ‘No Nut’ policy in place. This policy refers to foods such as nuts, muesli bars containing nuts and spreads such as peanut butter and Nutella.

If your child suffers from anaphylaxis, allergies or asthma, you will need to book a time with our Children’s Program Team Leader to complete a risk management plan. This plan must be completed before the child can begin.
