Creche Policies

The Moranbah Boxing & Sporting Club Inc provides a Crèche for the convenience of its members.  To enable us to provide a high quality of care and align with the regulations set down by the Department of Communities, we have implemented a Crèche Policy governing the operation of our Crèche and the care offered.  The Club has created this policy in conjunction with the guidelines offered by the Commission for Children and Young People.  Detailed below is a summary of the policy:

  • Hours of Care:             9.00am – 12.00pm      Monday – Friday

  • Cost is $3 per child per 90 minutes.  This fee assists the provision of tissues, wipes, biscuits, chalk and replacement of books and toys.  90 minutes allows enough time to attend an aerobics session, stretch, and chat with your fitness instructor.

  • We do ask that parents collect their child promptly at the finish of each session to free up spaces for other parents.

  • Crèche Closure/Holidays – The Crèche will only have one staff member on a day during school holidays. During public holidays a maximum of 10 children will be allowed in the crèche at one time. The Crèche will be closed for two weeks over the Christmas period.  Parents will be advised in advance of closure dates.

  • Staff to Children Ratio – The staff to children ratio is 1:10 and there shall be no more than 20 children in the designated Crèche area at any one time.

  • Babies – To ensure the safety and provision of appropriate care for all children, the Crèche will permit only two (2) babies under the age of six months.  Parents are required to provide nappies for their child on a daily basis.

  • Enrolment Procedure – We are required to keep records on each child in care.  These records will include:

  • Name, Address, Sex and Date of Birth;

  • Parent / Guardian details;

  • Emergency Contact details;

  • Particulars of the child’s health / medical / food requirements relevant to care;

  • Authorization with regards to Crèche staff providing appropriate medical attention in the event of an emergency.

  • Attendance Records – The Club requires parents to sign their child in and out of the Crèche at the commencement and finish of care.

  • Where necessary, parents may be asked to cease their activity and attend to their child to change a soiled nappy or in the instance of injury or illness.

  • Exclusion – Children who are sick with a contagious illness (e.g. diarrhoea, vomiting, head lice, chicken pox, etc) are not permitted to attend the Crèche.  Additionally, parents are asked to give due consideration to carers if their child is irritable or consistently not coping with care.

  • Safety – The Club provides a designated area for the Crèche.  The Crèche area must be kept in good repair, clean and free from pests.  Children must not have access to any dangerous items including poisons, corrosive substances, disinfectants, plastic cling film, plastic bags, dangerous electrical equipment and hot water pipes.

  • Staff – The Club requires that Crèche staff are over the age of 18;  hold a current ‘Blue Card’ and a current First Aid Certificate.

  • Refreshments – Parents should supply drinking water and light refreshments for their own children.  Please provide a non-spill cup if your child is unable to drink unassisted.

  • Food Restrictions MUST be adhered to.  A list of prohibited foods will be displayed at the Crèche entrance.  This list will be updated as amendments are made.

  • At the finish of each Aerobic or Gym session, parents should make their way to the Crèche without delay to enable other parents to utilise the facility.


Our aim is to provide successful and happy Crèche care for all children of clients.  Please do not hesitate to speak to our Crèche Staff should you have concerns regarding the quality of care.
