“Everyone involved in the care of young children has a role to play in their protection. As a childcare practitioner you are in a unique position to safeguard, listen to and observe any changes in a child’s behaviour or their appearance. If you have any reason to suspect that a child in your care is being abused, or is likely to be abused, you have a “duty of care to take action on behalf of the child, by contacting one of the agencies who has a duty to make enquiries.”
As a provider you will want to make sure the children you care for are protected.
