Kindergarten Policies

Picking Up Your Child

If you require some one else to pick up your child, please ensure you have them listed as an Additional Permanent Authorisation to Collect.  You can download the form here and give it to your child’s teacher. 

Infectious Disease

Kindy is not the place your child wants to be when they are unwell.

Please contact Red Hill Kindergarten and inform us of any infectious illness your child may contract, so that we can inform other caregivers.  Your information will be kept confidential.

It is always better to check with a health care professional on when your child can resume Kindy.

Absence Through Illness

It is recommended that you refrain from visiting the centre when your child is not in good health.

Please telephone your teacher so we are aware of your child’s absence.

Allergy Notification

It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the centre of any allergies their child is at risk of.  Parents must provide the centre with a written and current independent medical report that outlines the child’s medical condition, the recommended treatment able to be provided by RHK staff and any other matters deemed relevant (including an Anaphylaxis Action Plan).

Immunisation Policy

Following amendments to the Public Health Act 2005 (Qld) which took effect on 1 January 2016, Red Hill Kindergarten will no longer accept enrolments of children who are not “up to date” with their scheduled vaccinations. This policy applies to siblings of children previously enrolled at Red Hill Kindergarten.

Prior to enrolment and attendance at Red Hill Kindergarten, parents are required to provide an immunisation history statement stating that their child’s immunisation status is “up to date” (and an updated statement when their child passes future vaccination milestones if applicable).

Children who have an exemption for a vaccine given by a recognised immunisation provider because of a medical contraindication to a vaccine are considered “up to date”. Similarly, children who are on an approved immunisation catch-up schedule developed by a recognised immunisation provider are also considered “up to date”.
