Why is safe sleeping important?

Services must take reasonable steps to ensure children’s needs for sleep and rest are met, having regard to each child’s age, developmental stages and needs. The approved provider must ensure policies and procedures are in place about sleep and rest practices for children and infants, based on current recommended evidence-based guidelines. Rhonda Livingstone, ACECQA’s National Education Leader, contributed to this safe sleeping resource for Red Nose.
