As more and more children get sick, they are likely unknowingly spreading infections throughout childcare facilities. So, cleanliness and infection control must be properly managed. As a childcare owner or manager, it is vital to do everything to keep children and their families safe.
As we all know, children and their caregivers in childcare centres are often in confined spaces together therefore infectious illnesses can easily spread. Childcare centres are never going to be germ-free but there are guidelines that can be followed to minimise and prevent staff and children from falling ill.
