1.      Procedures and Practices Incidents and Accidents

1.1 Purpose:

To ensure that all parents/carers and educators are aware of the procedures that are followed in the event of a child having an accident or sustaining an injury whilst at Australian International Learning Centre.

If a child has an accident whilst attending the International Learning Centre:

  • First aid will be administered by one of our trained staff;
  • The child will be cared for and kept under adult supervision until he/she recovers and chooses to return to class activities, or parent/guardians or an emergency contact takes charge of the child;
  • A parent will not be contacted for minor scrapes and bruises e.g. a grazed knee. This is considered a consequence of children’s active play during snack time. Parents / carers will be told of the incident when the child is collected.
  • The parent/carer will be contacted if:
    • The injury sustained during the accident is likely to leave visible scarring on the face/head of the child. The child has or it is believed the child has sustained a head injury e.g. forceful bump or any indication of swelling or bruising.
    • Further medical attention is deemed necessary.
    • For any reason the person administering first aid treatment deems it necessary. This decision will be taken in consultation with the Head of the International leaning Centre.
  • All reasonable attempts will be made to contact and notify the parent/guardian of the accident and to secure their consent for immediate medical aid should it be required – staff will note attempts they make to contact parents or emergency contacts;
  • If ambulance attention, transport or medical attention is required, a parent/guardian will be notified as soon as possible.
  • An accident record form will be completed if any first aid is administered or if it is deemed necessary by the person taking charge of the child. This form must be signed by the person collecting the child at the end of the session.
  • It will include the following information:
    • Child’s name and date of birth.
    • Date of accident or injury
    • Brief details of accident, if observed
    • Any action taken for the well-being and comfort of the child
    • If the parent/carer was notified and at what time.
    • Provision for the parent to sign that they have been advised of accident or injury. These forms are located in the Attendance Record.

1.2 Incidents

An incident is when an injury or damage occurs that was not a result of an accident, i.e. it was the result of a purpose act, for example – a child hits another, a child throws a toy, a child hits out at a staff member.

  • If an incident occurs, staff will complete an incident form for the child that caused the incident, so that parents are notified of the behaviours and actions of their child.
  • If a child is injured, the staff will provide First Aid, providing support and comfort. Staff will discuss with the child who caused the incident – their actions, and the cause and effect of the child’s behaviour.
  • If this occurs on an ongoing basis than an individual management plan for that child may be implemented or the International Learning Centre will refuse enrolment for safety reasons.
  • For serious aggressive acts, a parent may be called by the Head of the ILC to come and collect their child for the remainder of the session. Depending on the incident the ILC has the right to withdraw enrolment of the child.

2.      Medication Policy including Asthma, Anaphylaxis and Diabetes

2.1 Guidelines for Dispensing Medicines

  • All medication should be in the container in which it was dispensed.
  • All medication should be clearly labelled with:
    • the child’s name;
    • the name of the drug;
    • the dosage and frequency to be given;
    • the prescribing doctor’s name.
  • Children who require ongoing prescribed medication for health conditions such as asthma, anaphylaxis and other conditions should have an up to date health (within 1 year) management plan. The plan should be written by the prescribing doctor or parent/guardian and should include information on the expected level of supervision and assistance required to manage the condition.
  • Staff involved in administering Ritalin or similar drugs need to be informed by the child’s doctor (via parents) of what to do if a dose is missed.
  • Provision should be made for staff to work in teams so that all medications are administered only in the presence of the Head of the International Learning Centre.
  • Where medication is required during the Saturday teaching session parents must sign a permission to dispense medication form. This form should contain the medicine that is to be dispensed, the amount required and at what time, and should be signed consent by the parent.
  • A record of all medication given will be maintained. The following information will be recorded; the date, child’s name, substance, dosage, and the names and signatures of the two members of staff present whilst the medication is administered. These records should be signed at the end of the session by the person collecting the child to ensure that this information is passed on.
  • Any medications kept in the ILC premises are to be kept on a high shelf in labelled boxes or locked in a box in the fridge.
  • Alternative arrangements may involve parents/guardians if suitable staff are not available to administer the medication.

2.2 Asthma

  • All full time permanent ILC Teachers will have a current First Aid certificate which includes asthma training.
  • Families whose child suffers from asthma and requires asthma medication must provide an asthma puffer and spacer to be kept in the designated first aid area. This medication should be accompanied by an asthma plan signed by either a doctor or a parent/carer, and a request to dispense medication signed by the parent/carer.
  • A notification of children with asthma medication is available for the teacher by way of a spreadsheet containing the child’s photograph and where appropriate possible triggers for an attack. This information is located in the attendance records. There are also copies of this medical information in the child’s file and on the server.
  • Should a child show signs of having an asthma attack staff should immediately locate the puffer and refer to the asthma action plan as supplied by the parent.
  • Where a child has a history of an anaphylactic reaction the following procedure must be followed.
  • Prior to the child starting at International Learning Centre a meeting should be arranged with the parents, child, teaching staff (for the class in which they are enrolled) and the Director of the International Learning Centre. During this meeting the following will be discussed:
    • the trigger of the anaphylactic attack- allergy.
    • the medication that needs to be dispensed.
    • the anaphylaxis action plan – other support that the Centre can give to the child and their family in order to minimise the risk of an attack.
  • When the child starts to attend the International Learning Centre the Anaphylaxis Action Plan will be displayed within the attendance roll, with an up to date photograph of the child, in the designated areas and the Medical Record folder.
  • Where appropriate, anaphylactic triggers deemed life threatening will be banned from the ILC.
  • Any extra measures, as deemed necessary, will be activated throughout the International Learning Centre in order to minimise risk and reduce harm.
  • Should the child show early signs of an anaphylactic reaction:
    • a staff member will immediately retrieve the labelled medication box from the child’s bag containing a copy of the action plan and this plan will be followed.

3.      Hand Washing and Toileting Policy

3.1 Purpose

To provide a safe and healthy environment for all children, staff and families and to minimise the spread of infection as far as practicable.

International learning Centre has a responsibility to protect the health and safety of all children, staff and families. The centre aims to ensure all staff, children and families work together to minimise the spread of infection. The three most effective ways of reducing the spread of infections are:

  1. Hand washing
  2. Exclusion of sick children and staff
  3. Immunisation
  • The classrooms are fitted with appropriate child height basins for children to wash their hands and paper towels to dry. The toilets on each level are child appropriate.
  • A mild soap is provided for all staff and children. Parents must advise staff of any soap allergies children may have and provide alternative products.
  • Hand sanitizer is available in every room and at the front entrance of AISHK for the convenience of staff and families. Hand sanitizer can be used to reduce the spread of infection, but does not replace effective hand washing with soap and running water.
  • Hand washing procedures are displayed for all children.
  • Staff and children must wash their hands: – Before preparing or handling any food. – Before snack. – After 
  • going to the toilet. – After cleaning up blood or other bodily fluids – e.g. blowing nose

4.      Sustainability Policy

4.1 Purpose

To promote positive attitudes and practices towards sustainable practices in the International Learning Centre and educating the children and families in our ILC community.

We recognise and acknowledge that children are active citizens who are responsible for the present and future sustainability of the world. We recognise that the International Learning Centre are ideally placed to teach children for and about environmental sustainability.

Teachers and Assistants will:

  • Include recycling as part of everyday practice at all levels.
  • Role model sustainable practices.
  • Discuss sustainable practices with the children and families as part of the services education and care curriculum.
  • Provide information to families on sustainable practices that are implemented at the education and care service and encourage the application of these practices in the home environment.
  • Share ideas between educators, children and families about sustainable ideas, implementation and resources. This can be done through emails, newsletters, teaching and learning, teacher conversations and on our ILC website.
  • Use a composting bin to reduce food waste during the play break. Children will be encouraged to place food scraps into separate containers for use in the worm farm or composting bin. Educators will discuss with the children and families which scraps worms can eat and which foods can be composted. The children will be involved in maintaining the worm farm and compost.
  • Role model energy and water conservation practices of turning off lights and air-conditioning when a room is not in use, emptying water play containers onto garden areas or pot plants on the 4th floor.
  • Aim to purchase equipment that is eco-friendly where possible. Educators will reduce the amount of plastic and disposable equipment they purchase and select materials that are made of natural materials and fibres.
  • Seek to embed sustainable practice in the education of the students in the International Learning Centre.
  • The concepts of “reduce, re-use and recycle” will become part of every Saturday practice for both children and educators to build lifelong attitudes towards sustainability.
