For the latest advice visit www.covid19.qld.gov.au

The health, safety and welfare of children, families, educators and staff of early childhood education and care services continues to be the Department of Education’s key focus. 

The department is continuing to liaise closely with public health authorities in relation to the latest developments and will act immediately on their advice.

Educators, staff and families should access information about border restrictions, interstate hotspotscontact tracing, symptoms of COVID-19 and when to seek medical advice and prevention via the Queensland Health and Australian Government websites.

The emergency closures website lists early childhood service closures.

If a service is closed in response to a positive COVID-19 case or as a precaution, the service will provide information directly to parents and carers about the duration of the closure and arrangements to ensure children continue learning.

All early childhood services including outside school hours care (OSHC) remain open and operating unless advised otherwise by health authorities.

Parents or carers should let their early childhood service know if their child is unwell and keep them at home.

Read more in the service operation information or FAQs for parents and carers.
