Piney Lakes Childcare maintains health and hygiene standards in accordance with ‘The Staying Healthy in Childcare’ and ‘Infectious Diseases Guidelines’. The centre is cleaned throughout the day in order to maintain a healthy and hygienic environment. Policies and procedures have been created and are strictly followed throughout the daily routine and children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own health and hygiene with the support of educators through discussion, curriculum and routines. This includes focusing on handwashing, healthy bodies, nutrition, dental care and cleanliness. There is a hand sanitiser station at the sign in and out desk located at the front of the service. Children, families and educators are encouraged to sanitise their hands upon arrival and departure to ensure the health and safety of everyone who attends the centre and the wider community.

We provide four meals a day morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a late snack. Menus are displayed at the sign in and out desk of the centre.

Please let us know if your child has an allergy or special eating requirement which we are happy to cater for.

All meals provided reflect seasonal local produce and are prepared daily from ingredients selected for their absolute freshness and quality. By focusing on this we avoid the use of colouring, artificial flavours, salt, sugar and additives.

We celebrate and value diversity with exciting menus which reflect and accommodate each individual child’s dietary requirements.

We respect the values of each individual family and cater to any special eating requirements.
