From 1 January 2018, only children who are fully immunised for their age OR have a medical reason not to be immunised OR are on a catch-up schedule can be enrolled in childcare. Children who have not been immunised due to their parent’s vaccine conscientious objection cannot be enrolled in childcare. All parents need to provide childcare staff with appropriate immunisation documentation to enrol their child.
Please read the attached Immunisation Schedule and Immunisation Brochure for Families if you would like further information. Alternatively, please visit NSW Health’s Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
The NSW Government has a concise fact sheet located here which helps clarify the recommended exclusion periods for children and their families that are experiencing illness. We stick closely to these guidelines to keep our Little Peoples community safe.
