Cleaning and Maintenance Schedule

To assist this process and to ensure the continual flow of our “school and Extra-curricular” activities, the Little Learners Group has an extensive Maintenance and cleanliness program across all of our centres.

Apart from the daily and weekly cleaning of all rooms/bathrooms, equipment, toys, teaching aids, and ancillary equipment, the Little Learners Groups engages the following Maintenance and Cleaning schedule:

Weekly Maintenance and Cleaning schedule:

  • All Artificial Grass is vacuumed and water blast cleaned.
  • All sandpits are raked and turned.
  • All fixed play equipment and bikes/scooters are cleaned
  • All mobile play equipment are cleaned
  • All footpaths and cubby houses / balance Beams and associated equipment are cleaned.

Quarterly Maintenance and Cleaning regime:

  • All Sandpits are “topped up” with new sand – and the sand is raked and turned.
  • All the mulch is “topped up”, raked
  • All woodwork “Arbours, balance beams, walkways, and rest areas” are inspected (repaired if necessary) and re stained.
  • All plants and rock work is inspected and repaired/replaced where appropriate.
  • All outdoor play equipment is inspected, cleaned.
  • All outdoor shade cloth is inspected, cleaned.

NB:  In addition to the above, Lake Cathie Little Learners employs a local Gardener / Handy Man to look after daily maintenance requirements.

At the Lake Cathie Little Learners – our aim is to provide a safe, happy and hygienic environment to assist our children to learn and develop.  We believe that “one of the points of difference” between the Little Learners Group and other centres is our “No Compromise” policy on hygiene – a clean and healthy centre creates an environment for healthy minds.  We believe that every child has the right to grow up and to live, learn and play in a healthy environment.
