Therefore, they are a captive audience for age-appropriate health education and interventions that will influence their health status and practices for the rest of thier lives. Our ECD centre health programme ensures that we are able to capitalize on this invaluable opportunity for the healthy development of children and the communities in which they live.
  2. Based on the World Heath Organisation’s description of an ECD Centre health programme, our Health and Safety Policy is a combination of procedures that contribute ensuring the physical, mental and social well-being of the children so as to maximize their learning capabilities. It directly targets all children attending thi sECD centre and includes our entire ECD centre community i.e. staff, parents and children.
  3. The promotion of health in our environment is non-negotiable. Ill children may simply not come to the ECD centre. There is more detail on this in the body of this document.

    1. Within 12 hours of a high temperature;
