Unexplained absences - have your say:
Should providers be made to call?
phoneAfter the tragic death of a West Australian toddler outside a Perth child care centre in October some members of the Australian child care industry are calling for a review of procedures in the case of unexplained absences.

Speaking to Early Childhood Australia CEO Sam Page said she wants to work with industry experts to stop 'hot car' deaths.

"There is quite a debate going on with some services saying they do call parents if a child doesn't come and others saying (unexplained absences) happen too often and it would be too much of a burden," she said.

"I can see pros and cons. It doesn't guarantee you can solve the problem; the service can call the parent but it could go to voicemail."
