Policies

Our policies at Meerilinga have been created to establish boundaries, guidelines, and best practices for acceptable behavior in our centres. Being honest and transparent with employees, families and all other stakeholders in our community, ensures we all have the same expectations of services offered.

In the first instance, please read the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic Management Policy and Processes as specific points in this Policy align with the management of Coronavirus (COVID-19) and additional measures are in place to inform and protect our Meerilinga community.
