Covid-19 Response

CoVID safe commitment 
Ascot Kindergarten is committed to providing a safe environment for our students, families and staff. We hope this will give us every opportunity to stay open and continue to provide our children with the kindergarten experience they deserve. We are proud to share that we have a fully vaccinated staff. We know that one of the best ways to protect our children is to vaccinate the adults around them. We have put strategies in place to improve ventilation in our indoor spaces and are currently purchasing air purifiers. Consistent with our play-based learning philosophy and the emphasis on connection to our environment, we are spending more time outdoors with the children exploring their environment. We encourage parents and carers to please keep your children home if unwell. 

Refer to our COVIDSafe Plan for more details as well as our Infectious Diseases Policy and Emergency Management Plan.
