General Day Care Centre or School Assessment


IPAC Consulting understands that no daycare or school is the same. Our General Assessment provides a solid foundation for the development of your customized infection control program. Our IPAC consultants will conduct an on-site risk assessment and review daily activities and programs to understand the challenges unique to your environment. A thorough review of your policies and procedures, staff education and training, environmental cleaning, and dietary delivery are some of the major topics that will be addressed. Our IPAC consultants will then develop plans, policies and procedures, and training and education materials to help keep staff, students, and families safe and healthy.


Let us help you stand with the best.
