Child Care News for Parents & Carers
April 19, 2017
Welcome, this week how to help your baby sleep well when they start child care and 'Let Kids Be Kids' a new initiative to highlight the importance of appropriate sideline behaviour at children's sporting matches. And don't forget to take our child care survey - your opinion counts.
Sleep and child care
Sleep. From the moment a baby arrives it's a word that dominates early parenting. How much are you getting? How often is baby sleeping? Will I ever sleep again? And just as you and baby might be getting into some semblance of a reliable sleep pattern, it's time to go back to work.

It's no surprise therefore, that high on the list of parental concerns about the transition to child care is how this will affect a baby's sleep routine.
A new campaign called 'Let Kids be Kids' that launched recently in Canberra has set out to address and correct poor sideline behaviour in junior sports.

Backed by several key sports personalities, such as Socceroo's coach Ange Postecoglou, netball and volleyball player Caitlin Thwaites and Australian cricketer Usman Khawaja, the initiative, part-led by the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), is aimed at parents who are abusive or overly negative at junior sports matches. The initiative includes videos, personal testimonies, and toolkits for sporting organisations to deal with the problem.
