There are currently NO Covid Operational restrictions in place.

Please see previous Covid 19 guidelines below.

What Plans do Kidsbase have in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your children at our Programmes?

The Ministry of Health and Ministry of Social Development have set operational guidelines specifically for OSCAR (Out of School Care and Recreation) environments, in-line with relevant Covid 19 Alert levels.

To ensure that Kidsbase are rigorously following all Government guidelines the following Health and Safety plan has been established at all of our Programmes:

On the 3rd December 2021 The Government introduced the new Covid 19 Protection Framework (Traffic Light) Protocols. Please find below a guide to the Traffic Light System for OSCAR Programme Providers:

  • OSCAR Programmes do NOT Require Vaccine Passes
  • QR Codes must be displayed at all Programmes and Parent/Caregivers are required to Scan in on each visit.
  • Hand sanitiser stations will be set up at the front door/entrance to the Kidsbase Programme, this is for ALL children to use upon arriving at the programme and all parents to use when dropping off and collecting children.
  • The use of the playground equipment is permitted but good hygiene practices need to be used by children and staff after using any playground equipment.
  • All on-site toilet policies need to be observed including children advising staff when they need to use the toilet and staff displaying signage when inside the toilet.
  • Physical distancing of children is recommended but not expected, recommended distance is to restrict touching other children or breathing on other children.
  • Staff to observe at least 1m personal distancing with each other and any other adult.
  • Daily cleaning and sanitisation routines will be introduced and followed , these include daily cleaning and sanitisation of facility hard surfaces, door handles and all shared equipment and toys within the programme.
  • Children to only drink water from own drink bottles or Kidsbase supplied cups, not from water fountains.
  • Contact tracing will be automatically completed as each child is electronically signed in and out of a programme via Aimyplus. This records who the parent/caregiver is, what time and date they were at Kidsbase.
  • Schools may have their own policies and procedures regarding parent/caregivers ability to be on-site, Kidsbase will formulate individual pick up/drop off procedures in-line with that schools policies.
