Welcome, how would you feel about handing over power to the children in your service? This week learn about the German kindergarten doing just that. Also, how to prevent and manage a gastro outbreak.
Power to the (little) people
In what is thought to be a world first, a kindergarten in Germany is running a mini democracy and giving the children who attend a say in the day-to-day operation of the service via a representative voting system.

The Dolli-Einstein-Haus in Pinneberg, Northern Germany, which enrols children three years and older, gives children a democratic vote in certain aspects of the daily routine, including meal options, naptime, certain activities and who changes their nappies.
Managing a gastro outbreak in your service
There has been a flood of media reports about gastro outbreaks in school and early childhood centres in the last few months. In fact, Queensland's Courier Mail reports a fourfold increase in gastro outbreaks in child care centres with almost 200 children affected since June.

In early childhood services a gastro 'outbreak' is defined as two or more people with diarrhoea and/or vomiting in an early childhood service at one time. This includes children as well as educators and support people working in a centre.
