This year’s National Reconciliation Week will run from 27 May until the 3 June and the theme is “More Than A Word. Reconciliation takes action.”
The theme asks us all to reflect on what we are doing and what more we can do to support reconciliation and develop communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and futures.
Here are some actions we have taken at our service at Erina kindergarten to introduce meaningful reconciliation initiatives for children this National Reconciliation Week and beyond. We engaged in a aboriginal gardening experience with some of children across our rooms!Read More
|The department has created a flyer for families which addresses how they can raise concerns about early childhood education and care services.|
The flyer encourages families to raise concerns directly with the director, manager or staff members of the service in the first instance, if there is no risk to the health, safety and wellbeing of children. It then informs families to contact the department if the service cannot resolve the issue, or if there is a risk to the health, safety and wellbeing of children. This promotes the proper management of incidents in Quality Area 2.2 – Safety, ensuring each child is protected.
The flyer also outlines the responsibility of services and the NSW Department of Education as the regulator when receiving and responding to complaints.
