Authors: Kerryann Walsh and Rhiannon Smith
ECA Product Code: EDL2204
Early childhood educators and service providers are taking large positive steps towards creating child safe organisations by ensuring their centres are places where every child is valued, and their rights to safety and wellbeing are respected and upheld. In short, they are working towards creating child safe organisations.
This Everyday Learning Series title explores:
- what a child safe organisation is and where the term comes from
- why it is important for organisations to ensure they are safe for children
- each of the 10 National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.
The book breaks down the National Principles, specifically for early childhood education and care services. It explains each principle and unpacks its meaning. Case studies provide real-world examples to show the application of each of the principles to early childhood education and care contexts. Reflective questions guide this application with manageable steps, and the additional resources provide ways to delve deeper into each principle.
