Promoting child protection : early childhood education and care services playing their part
Irvine, Susan Lee (2008) Promoting child protection : early childhood education and care services playing their part. Reflections, pp. 6-7.
Over recent years, there has been a shift in government social policy in Australia toward interest and investment in family support, prevention and early intervention. Central to this new approach to supporting families and promoting better outcomes for children is the development of a continuum of services able to respond to different and changing family needs. This continuum or integrated service system seeks to better connect key human services, such as health, child care, education and family support. This paper explores the role of early childhood education and care (ECEC) services in promoting child protection and strengthening the safety and wellbeing of children.
