Childcare Policies & Procedures

Policies and procedures are an important part of our Centre, and all education and care settings.  Policies and Procedures assist to meet the requirements under the National Quality Framework and to identify and minimise risks, enable consistent practice to support staff, families and children, provide information for families, support staff to understand their role and responsibilities in the service and to provide ongoing working documents to guide high-quality practice across all aspects of service provision.  Click on the green buttons in the section below to download documents.
