Providing positive guidance

The regulations and guidelines for early childhood education services prescribe the health and safety standards for curriculum, management and staff which must be met by licensed and chartered early childhood education centres and home-based care networks. The way in which adults behave with and towards children in the early childhood education environment forms part of these regulations and requirements. A wide cross-section of organisations and individuals have been consulted on the development of these guidelines and have contributed examples of policies and practices which demonstrate the way in which goals and objectives for early childhood education are effectively met.
