Mt Gravatt Community Kindergarten, as a child safe environment, promotes the protection of all children and encourages a culture of awareness and education. A child safe environment is one in which all participants feel safe to make constructive suggestions and voice concerns at any time.
Everyone dealing with protecting children needs to feel they can speak up when they have a problem or concern, knowing they will be heard. We believe that voicing a concern about the safety of a child should not be viewed as an accusation. Staff, parents and volunteers should be confident that all concerns will follow due process and be treated seriously. All information needs to be dealt with confidentiality and with respect to all concerned.
The responsibility of protecting children is everyone’s business.
The kindergarten also has a Child and Youth Risk Management Strategy – please ask us if you would like to see a copy.
