WORKING WITH CHILDREN CHECK

Nagle Pre-School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Nagle Pre-School has zero tolerance for child abuse.

Nagle Pre-School is committed to providing a child safe environment where children are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability.

Every person involved in Nagle Pre-School has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make. To support this responsibility as a part of our Child Safe Standards Policy, Nagle Pre-School requires all parent/guardian volunteers to hold a current Working With Children (WWC) check and list Nagle as an organisation they are involved in prior to commencing volunteer duties (which includes parent duty help and excursions).
