Staying Healthy: preventing infectious diseases
in early childhood education and care services







This 5th edition replaces Staying Healthy in Child Care— Preventing infectious diseases in child care (4th edition), and represents an increased focus on a risk-management approach to infection prevention and control principles in daily care activities.

Staying Healthy provides educators and other staff working in education and care services with simple and effective methods for minimising the spread of disease. It contains more ‘how to’ advice on procedures and discussing exclusion periods with parents.


The advice is presented in six parts:


   1   concepts of infection control
   2   monitoring illness in children
   3   procedures
   4   issues for employers, educators and other staff
   5   fact sheets on diseases common to education and care services
   6   forms, useful contacts and websites.


Each section is colour-coded so you can quickly
find the information you need.  Download Now


This resource is also being offered FREE in hard copy:
