Welcome, in this week's edition we have strategies for boosting staff retention and a reminder on the importance of oral health in early childhood.
Reducing staff turnover in the early childhood sector – Practical Strategies
High staff turnover is a familiar problem for everyone responsible with hiring and managing staff in the early childhood sector. Low pay, long hours and poor recognition of the importance of the work, mean many people enter the job as a stepping-stone to something else.

In fact, a 2016 study conducted at QUT showed that as many as one in five early childhood educators planned to leave their jobs in the next five years. This is bad news for service managers, bad news for families and children and bad news for the sector more widely as high staff turnover is expensive, disruptive and time-consuming.
Supporting the oral health of young children
A new poll by the Royal Children's Hospital (RCH) has shown that one in three Australian children do not brush their teeth twice a day and one in ten have had at least one decayed tooth pulled out before they turn nine years old.

The RCH National Child Health Poll also revealed that one in three preschoolers have never visited a dentist and many well-meaning parents are confused about how to keep their children’s teeth healthy.
