Active and Ongoing Supervision
Fraser Health Licensing is responding to a number of incidents that have involved children going missing or being unsupervised. These types of events can have serious consequences and requires all care providers to take steps to ensure they actively supervise children at all times. Active Supervision, policies and procedures, and design/arrangement of children’s environments, can prevent or reduce the likelihood of accidents and serious injuries.
Provided and reviewed a copy of Fraser Health Alert – Active Supervision handout

· Remember: In the event that a serious incident does occur you must report to Licensing within 24 hours. Contact the licensing officer assigned to your facility or phone Fraser Health central line at 604-587-3936 and ask to speak to the Duty Licensing Officer.
