A new guide aimed at keeping children safe and healthy in child care centres was launched last week by Minister for Health, Tanya Plibersek, and Minister for Early Childhood and Child Care, Kate Ellis at KU Queanbeyan Early Learning Centre.

Health Minister Tanya Plibersek said the new Staying Healthy - Preventing infectious diseases in early childhood education and care services gives practical advice to childcare workers and parents on how to reduce the spread of infectious disease such as norovirus and the flu.
