Parents/carers are responsible for their own children whilst at playgroup. The safety and wellbeing of every child in our playgroup is paramount.
All members should feel playgroup is a safe environment to attend with their children. This includes attending playgroup without fear of being exposed to contagious illnesses. It is important to recognise when your child is sick and prohibit them from attending playgroup.
IPKC is pro vaccination and expects members to follow the Swiss schedule.
If possible, please don't bring toys from home as this can be upsetting for your children if another child starts to play with them.
When your group meets at the club room, all adults are required to wear masks before entering and we will keep windows open for enhanced airflow. Please leave shoes and coats outside of the room at the coat rack as well as using the hand sanitiser before entering the room.
We will be introducing a designated clean up time so that we can keep the room as clean as possible. Therefore the last 15 minutes of the group will be dedicated to wiping down the toys that have been used during that session.
Your group leader will ask for one or two volunteers to help with this each week. We really appreciate all the help and support you can give your group leaders to help keep the room as safe as possible for everyone.
If you or your child have any COVID symptoms, including any sort of cough, cold or temperature, we ask that you stay away from playgroup until 48 hours after your symptoms have gone. If you’re in doubt about any particular cases, please get in touch with us.
If you have had contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 or have had Covid symptoms/positive test within your family, please only return to IPKC at least 14 days after your last contact/after symptoms have ceased. We have chosen to stick to 14 days because we want to err on the side of caution with lots of pregnant mums in our community, who are on Switzerland’s at risk list, in addition to the close proximity we will have to each other in the room.
