Child care centre safety is important to Kelmscott Childcare Centre and the centre was fortunate to be nominated for the Consumer Protection Awards in 2013, while the centre didn’t win, it was a great honer to be nominated and attend the award function.
The centre incorporated hazard identification activities in to the curriculum, which aims to improve hazard awareness in educators and children. Children learn about potential dangers and how to actively assess and manage risks in a range of situations including road safety, fire evacuations and stranger danger.
Here is a snippet of one of the activities that a group of children participated in, you can see more on our facebook page.
