In addition, in order to minimise transmission across centres, supplementary programmes such as enrichment activities where providers move across different centre will still remain suspended.

COVID-Safe ABCs: Safety Measures in Preschools

With the transition out of the Circuit Breaker period, all preschools will be required to adhere to the COVID-Safe ABCs – measures which cover access, behaviours and classroom activities.

Amongst these measures are the restriction of visitors, face masks or shields to be used by all staff and children ages 2 and upwards, as well as staggered drop-off and pick up times. Cross-class and large group activities will also be suspended.

The full details of the COVID-Safe ABCs can be found here.
