Child Protection

Little Diggers has a duty of care to provide an environment that is safe for all children attending the service. We endeavour to support families of children with specific protection needs.

As early childhood educators, we are placed in a position of trust to protect young children. All staff are mandatory reporters and are legally obliged to report suspected child abuse to the helpline (133 627) without notification to the parent.

We have a comprehensive child protection policy which is included in our enrolment pack. We have lots of information on child protection which can be the parent information rack or by asking s staff member.

Court orders

Parents must notify the Service if there are any Court Orders affecting residency of their children and a copy is required for the Service. Without a Court Order, we cannot stop a parent collecting your child. Please talk to us if there is a sensitive issue.
