Kindyhub    Beginning Kindergarten can be an anxious time for children and parents alike. Use Kindyhub to put families’ minds at ease.

Starting kindy can involve children being anxious and scared and parents can feel the same way. There can be separation anxiety, the stress of making new friends, a new environment to deal with, and a new daily routine.

It’s not just the children that are worried – it can be a time of stress for parents too. Is your little one going to be happy? Is this the best kindergarten for them? Are they having their snacks / meals / naps on time? Are the children doing activities at kindy that are beneficial and most importantly, are they having fun!?

PARENT INFORMATION

Kids and Poisons

In New South Wales, every year thousands of children need medical care for poisoning from products commonly found in and around the home. Most accidental poisonings occur to children younger than five, with children aged one to three at greatest risk.

Why are children more likely to be poisoned?

Young children are exploring their world and will put anything in their mouths. They also like to imitate what others do, including taking medications.

What can be poisonous to your child?

Medicines, cleaning, laundry, gardening and car products, insecticides, perfumes, paint, plants, insects and many others.

How can you prevent a poisoning?

  • Store medicines and chemicals out of sight and reach of children, at least 1.5 metres off the ground and in a locked child resistant container.
  • Use medicines and chemicals safely. Follow given instructions and return them to safe storage immediately after use. 
  • Buy products in child resistant containers and use child resistant locks on cupboards or cabinets that store poisons. You can buy these at many hardware stores. 
  • Ensure all products are stored in original containers and are clearly labelled. Regularly dispose of unwanted and out of date medicines by taking them to your nearest pharmacy for safe disposal. 
  • Don't call medicines 'lollies'. 
  • Check that the plants in your garden are not poisonous
For more information on the prevention of poisoning, call Kids Health, The Children's Hospital at Westmead on (02) 9845 3585.
