Plea to register illegal day care
People operating illegal day care centres are again being urged to register their centres.
The appeal came from Beverley Corbin, senior child care officer with the Child Care Board (CCB) with responsibility for all day care centres across the island, as she spoke yesterday at the Hygiene And Sanitation Seminar For Day Care Workers at the Discovery Bay Hotel.
The seminar was organized by the Environmental Health Department of the Maurice Byer Polyclinic to sensitize day care workers on hygiene and sanitation standards for their workplaces.
Corbin stressed that there were many illegal day care centres in operation across the island and they were operating in ways that were detrimental to the standards the CCB was trying to establish for all day care centres. She explained that specific steps, including obtaining permission from the Fire Service, the CCB, Town and Country Planning, the Environmental Health Department and doctor’s certification of acceptable health were necessary to ensure that the centres were operating efficiently.
