Supervision of Children

 At all times, reasonable precautions and adequate supervision ensure children are protected from harm and hazard.   Supervision is a key aspect of ensuring that children’s safety is protected at all times in the service environment and while on excursion and during transportation provided or arranged by the service.

The educational leader and educators promote children’s learning, wellbeing and development by creating safe physical and social environments that have a positive impact. All children have a right to be protected from potential hazards and dangers posed by products, plants, objects, animals and people in the immediate and wider environment. Educators need to be alert to and aware of the potential for accidents and injury throughout the service, not just within their immediate area.

By fostering children’s capacity to understand and respect the social and natural environment, educators create learning environments that encourage children to explore, problem solve and create and construct in challenging and safe ways.
