Our mission is that every child has a right to a safe sleeping environment.
You may wonder how Safe Policy might be important to you as a parent or caregiver.
If you place your child in childcare, your Childcare Centre will have a Safe Sleep Policy which guides the way they care for your child. Since 2017 as part of their accreditation process, each Centre must have a current policy which they should be incorporating into their Best Practice. The policy will explain how the Centre will follow Safe Sleeping recommendations and provide a safe sleep space for your child.
As a parent, you should be provided with the opportunity have a copy of your Centre’s Safe Sleep Policy.
As a childcare educator, following your Centre’s Safe Sleep Policy will support the valuable work you do.
