A NEW short course has been developed for professionals working in the Early Years Education and Care Sector.  It provides a holistic response not only to safe sleep practices for young children but also healthy sleep practices. 

Young children and babies rely on adults in their world to provide safe sleeping environments.  In this course we will pay specific attention to children from birth to two years of age. Unsafe sleep environments for infants in the Early Education and Care sector can lead to suffocation, strangulation, entrapment or injury.  All of these can be deadly to infants. In Australia the main category of unexpected deaths of babies aged between 4 weeks and 12 months of age is sudden unexplained death in infancy (SUDI). 

This course will teach practical processes which should be implemented to create consistent application of approved safe sleep and practices.  This includes information on approved equipment available to maintain a safe environment. It will also cover legal requirements and best practices in meeting with those requirements by establishing protocols, procedures and policies surrounding safe sleep and rest practices - Including Regulation 81 (Sleep and rest) of the Education and Care Services National Regulations.  The course assists Educators in developing inclusive practices with families which will in turn enhance sleep, rest and relaxation needs of children.  You will learn simply strategies to support you in these endeavors in your service community.  

The information in this course has been provided to you in partnership with Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland and the College for Australian Early Childhood Educators.

COST : $35.00 per course (gst inc) -  Under online course section - Short Courses for Early Years Sector
