Educators registered with a family day care service in a large local government area are supported to actively promote and support children’s health through the coordination unit. The unit conducts regular assessments of educators’ homes to ensure the health and safety of all children is protected and ensures educators follow current recommended practice and guidelines from recognised authorities.

Standard 2.2 Safety – Each child is protected.

Case study 1

This preschool / kindergarten service catering for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, is situated in a school setting in a remote location several hours drive from the nearest city. The service is surrounded on three sides by bushland, which poses increased risks during the bushfire season. Additionally, many family members volunteer as firefighters at this time.
