Coronavirus Update

Coronavirus update from the Dingley Kindergarten Centres Inc Committee

Dear Families,

The Committee and Staff of Dingley Kindergarten Centres Inc want to provide you with an update on how the COVID-19 outbreak is or may impact your child’s Early Years Education experience.

The current advise from the Department of Education and the Department of Health and Human Services is as follows.

Unwell children and staff:

In accordance with Preventing infectious diseases in early childhood education and care services send unwell children or staff home. Unwell children and staff should remain at home until symptoms resolve and seek medical assistance as required.


Maintaining good health hygiene at early childhood education services:

Everyone can protect against infections by practicing good hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene.

  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a tissue, or cough into your elbow.
  • Dispose of the tissue into a bin and then wash your hands afterward.
  • Wash your hands regularly, after using the toilet, and before eating.


If you suspect a child or a family member is a confirmed case or been in contact with a confirmed case, please contact your group teachers or the presidents so that further actions can be taken as required.


Thankyou for your extra diligence during this difficult time and we aim to continue providing our Early Years Education program without interruption.

Yours sincerely,

The Committee
