Practice Audit for Day Care Centre and Schools


Practice Audits allow our certified consultants to take a deep dive into the daily tasks of your teachers, students, and support staff. While the General Day Care Centre or School Assessment provides the groundwork for an effective infection control program, the actions of staff and students allow us to identify gaps, barriers, and obstacles to a properly implemented program. An IPAC Consultant will provide anonymous evaluations along with appropriate discussion during the assessment. Evaluations will focus on general hygiene, hand washing, cleaning, and food delivery programs. Upon completion, you can familiarize yourself with how to improve implementation of your program through our in-depth written report.


Let us help you stand with the best.
