If your child is receiving day care in Cannington or any Perth suburb, you cannot get child care subsidies unless that child is vaccinated. At Cuddles Childcare Centres, we require proof of vaccination at enrolment. So, why is vaccination so important?
Because of the amount of children, it can be difficult to keep them all healthy. When one child comes to school sick, it can infect half of the day care centre or even more. One of the best ways to help avoid the spread of diseases in daycare and in the general population is vaccination.
While it isn’t the law in all states, most responsible day care centres now require that children are either vaccinated, have a medical reason that contraindicates vaccination or are on a “catch up schedule” for vaccinations.
Vaccinations and Day Care
At Cuddles Childcare Centres, we require vaccinations because we want to keep all children and staff safe from diseases and illnesses. Vaccinations can wipe out diseases if everyone gets them, but only if everyone gets them. We simply do not want an outbreak of a disease in one of our day care facilities when it could have been prevented by vaccination.
While the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit are slated to be replaced by the new child care subsidy scheme in July, 2018, it is important to note that neither can be received by a child who isn’t fully vaccinated or on a “catch up” schedule to become current in vaccinations. This is no accident. The Government is committed to making day care facilities safe places for your children. Vaccines play a large role in this safety.
