This course will give you an understanding of how infections including COVID-19 are transmitted and what measures you can put in place to prevent and control their spread.

The information provided in this course is based on national guidance from a range of sources including:

  • Public Health England, Public Health Wales and Public Health Scotland
  • The Department for Education
  • The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)
  • The Health and Safety Executive (HSE)

Children often attend a range of settings outside the home including time spent at a childminder, nursery, school and children’s activity centres. This means that they come into contact with an increasing number of germs and infections can spread more easily.

Everyone working with babies and children has an important role to play in preventing the spread of infection.

The Early Years Foundation Stage (3.44) says:

“the provider must promote the good health of children attending the setting. They must have a procedure discussed with parents and/or carers for responding to children who are ill or infectious, take necessary steps to prevent the spread of infection, and take appropriate action if children are ill.”

Play providers (anyone including volunteers) with control of non-domestic premises like a school or community hall have legal responsibilities under health and safety law to make the premises and any equipment or substances provided for their use there, safe, so far as is ‘reasonably practicable’.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) defines Play Providers as

“those managing or providing play facilities or activities in parks, green spaces, adventure playgrounds, holiday playschemes, schools, youth clubs, family entertainment centres and childcare provision”.
