All managers, staff and volunteers are committed to implementing the NSW Child Safe Standards.


The 10 child safe standards we are committed to implementing are:

  1.  Child Safety is embedded in the organisational leadership, governance and culture

  2. Children participate in decisions affecting them and are taken seriously

  3. Families and communities are informed and involved

  4. Equity is upheld and diverse needs are taken into account

  5. People working with children are suitable and supported

  6. Processes to respond to complaints of child abuse are child focused

  7. Staff are equipped with the knowledge, skills and awareness to keep children safe through continual education and training

  8. Physical and online environments minimise the opportunity for abuse to occur

  9. Implementation of the child safe standards is continuously reviewed and improved

  10. Policies and procedures document how the organisation is child safe.


The safety, health and wellbeing of children is the number one priority of all staff and volunteers who understand children’s safety is a shared responsibility. We have zero tolerance for any form of child abuse and are committed to acting in children’s best interests.  Our policies and procedures support and inform this commitment, and our leaders and managers regularly review staff and volunteer practices and understanding, prioritising training or taking other relevant action if required. 


Any questions about child safety at Leeton Preschool or within the community may be directed to a Responsible Person at the service (the Approved Provider, Nominated Supervisor or Person in Day to Day Charge). If employees, volunteers and families have concerns about the Approved Provider or Nominated Supervisor’s ability to provide or maintain a child safe environment, they should first discuss their concerns with another Responsible Person who will investigate and if substantiated contact the Child Protection Hotline on 132 111,  the NSW Regulatory Authority on 1800 619 113, the Police on 000 or the Children’s Guardian on 8219 3600 for advice. Employees, volunteers and families may contact these organisations directly if they believe the Responsible Person has not taken appropriate action.
