Do you need a Medical Management Plan form?

Medical Management Plans are a regulatory requirement and provide our Educators with the information required to best meet your child's medical needs. You will need to complete a Medical Management Plan if:

  • your child is new to Sutherland Shire Council Vacation Care and has been diagnosed with a medical condition.
  • has recently been diagnosed with a medical condition and this is the first Vacation Care period since the diagnosis.
  • your child's current plan is out-of-date, or will be out-of-date in the holiday period you are booking in for (plans need to be updated every 12 months)
  • your child's medical condition has changed or the management of the condition has changed.

Medical conditions include asthma, anaphylaxis, diabetes, an allergy requiring medication on contact allergen, etc.

Inclusion

Inclusion is at the heart of our philosophy and practices. We will support an enrolment where there are sufficient vacancies, facilities and resources suitable to the child’s needs.

Enrolments of children with a diagnosed disability are considered in light of the capacity and capability of the centre to safely and successfully meet the individual needs of the child. This also includes considering the number of children with a diagnosed disability who have already enrolled at your preferred Vacation Care centre.

You are welcome to call our team on phone 9710 0466 should you have any queries regarding inclusion within our OOSH services.

“My child attends Burraneer Bay Vacation Care and over the past few years she has really enjoyed her time there.  During the last holidays my daughter often spoke about some of the Educators who have been absolutely amazing and have made her experience exceptional. The Centre Coordinator is also consistently exceptional with her care & attention to each child’s needs. I am grateful for the energetic, engaging and caring team who have contributed to making my daughter’s experience so positive.”

 Our family values the care and fun activities provided at your Burraneer Bay Vacation Care centre. We believe it is a safe environment, where our child feels a part of the group. It is our first time using the service this term. We will definitely be back in future.”
