This resource is designed to support educators and service leaders to identify situations that may place children, and particularly the staff of an education and care service, at risk of workplace aggression or violence.
An essential part of the operation of any education and care setting is the development and implementation of policy for the community of children, families and staff. Here is a broad overview of, and introduction to, the policy planning process and some initial considerations to be made.
All services are required to have a Nominated Supervisor under the National Quality Framework. This role is very similar to the role of Authorised Supervisor under previous NSW Regulations.
Self assessment is an integral component of quality improvement and allows education and care services to evaluate their current practices through self-assessment against the National Quality Standard; and identify the practices they can or should improve.
Emergency and incident management is vital to protect the health and safety of children, staff and families in early education and care services.
Talking about the quality of your education and care service is one topic that all educators and staff should be effective in communicating; whether this is with families, children, the community, management or an Authorised Officer. We need to be able to identify what quality means in our individual service and how this is reflected in the education and care we provide.
The Educational Leader is supported and leads the development and implementation of the educational program and assessment and planning cycle.
Continuous improvement is important. Ensure you have an effective self-assessment and quality improvement process in place.
The philosophy provides a comprehensive statement reflecting long-term considerations, purpose, values, and beliefs of the education and care setting.
Structure, plain language, short sentences, good grammar, lack of clichés, active voice, passive voice, terminology and jargon, headers, footers, drafting, adapting, colloquial and formal.
There must be a responsible person present at a centre-based service at all times that the service is educating and caring for children.
