Welcome, this week a special feature on guiding children's behaviour and learn what you need to display to meet NQF requirements.
Guiding behaviour positively in early childhood settings
Children need adults to teach, guide, and support them as they grow and learn. Early childhood education and care providers play an important role in guiding children's behavior in positive, supportive, and age-appropriate ways.

The most appropriate ways to guide behavior vary at different ages, and depend on a child's developmental abilities and needs. For example, two-year-olds have limited understanding and need a lot of redirection, but five-year-olds can learn to be good problem solvers.

Effective guidance strategies also depend on an individual child's personality. Strategies that work well for one child may not be effective for another child of the same age.

What you must display
ACECQA has put together a reference guide for education and care providers unsure about what accreditation they need to have on public display in their service.

Information all services need to display:

  • Approved provider's name, approval number and any conditions on the provider's approval.
  • Nominated supervisor's name or the class to which the nominated supervisor belongs.
  • The service's current rating against each quality area and the overall rating.
  • Whether a waiver is in force at the service and if so, which elements and/or regulations have been waived, the duration of the waiver, and whether the waiver is a temporary or service waiver.
  • Hours and days of operation of the service.
  • Name and telephone number of a person to whom complaints can be addressed.
  • Name and position of the responsible person at a centre based service at any given time (this is not necessary at an FDC residence or venue).
  • Name of the educational leader.
  • Contact details of the regulatory authority.
  • If applicable, a notice stating that a child has been diagnosed as at risk of anaphylaxis at the service.
  • If applicable, a notice of an occurrence of an infectious disease at the service.
All this information must be displayed and clearly visible to anyone from the main entrance area at your service. You may prefer a noticeboard, posters, whiteboard or even a computer screen. It's also handy to have this information available as a handout
