Village Child Care Centre is a healthy place to play and learn because:

• We are a Sun-Safe centre – we actively teach sun safe practices. Wearing hats and sun cream and playing in the shade are part of our daily practice.

• We wash our hands regularly and we dry them well 

• We enjoy a delicious food menu that is planned and monitored by a child-nutritionist and based on the healthy living pyramid

• We drink lots of water and only use our own water bottles/cups

• We take care of our teeth by eating apple and cheese after lunch to clean our teeth and neutralise the sugar 

• We only attend kindy when we are well and we go home when teachers think we are getting sick so we don’t spread germs 

• Staff clean our rooms and bathrooms daily and regularly disinfect toys and equipment

• We often talk about being healthy and making healthy choices 

• We do dance or fitness activities daily to exercise our bodies 

• We have a rest or a sleep every day so we learn how to relax
