Message from the President – Entry Process to CPEC

During the coronavirus restrictions and COVID-19 implications, CPEC’s Board of Directors has determined that in order to increase security and protection of the children, staff and visitors at the centre, a new entry process will be put into place from Monday 3 August 2020 as follows:

  • Where the parent/s are unavailable to attend the centre for the therapy session, they will advise the receptionist prior to the session and advise the name of the person that will be attending and their relationship with the child.
  • If the person is a family member – grandparent, uncle, aunt, etc they will be asked for their driver’s licence on arrival at the centre as proof of identity.
  • If the person is a disability support worker, they must show their current Working with Children Check Card on arrival or Driver’s Licence if the person is over 18 years of age.

Details of the visit will be recorded in the “Visitor’s Book” for security purposes and to enable coronavirus contact tracing, if necessary.

If the person attending the centre with the child is unable to provide either proof of identity or their current Working with Children Check card, they will not be able to enter the education centre.

We ask that parents advise their family members working with their children or their disability support workers of the changes to the entry conditions to CPEC and explain to them that these are new precautionary measures determined by the Board, align with the new requirements of the NDIS Quality and Safeguards Commission and WorkSafe Requirements.

Thank you for your on-going support.

Kind regards

Tom Kennedy
Board President
