Health and safety

The safety, security and health of our children is of utmost importance to us.

We take our civil defence and emergency planning very seriously at Capital City Preschool and pride ourselves on our preparation for emergencies.

All of our children and teachers are equipped with an emergency bag which is includes, warm clothes, a torch, comfort food, water, a hypothermia blanket, emergency contact phone numbers and medication. 

Our Preschool building meets the Earthquake safety standards. Should an earthquake occur while we are at the Preschool, we will endeavour to stay at the Preschool as long as we can. We will announce on Facebook and Educa any closures or if we have been advised to move to other premises. We have an emergency pack including pens and paper available at the gate should we, or any family and friends need to leave a note to let others know where we, or you have gone. 

Excursions

Our location in the central city provides our children with the perfect opportunity to explore the local community. We ensure that children are highly visible on our excursions.
