The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines child abuse and child maltreatment as - "all forms of physical and/or emotional ill-treatment, sexual abuse, neglect or negligent treatment or commercial or other exploitation, resulting in actual or potential harm to the child's health, survival, development or dignity in the context of a relationship of responsibility, trust or power."

Child abuse can also include the failure to act by a parent or a caregiver that causes potential harm to the child. This can happen either at the child’s home or in other places like schools or child care centres.

Any professionally managed child care centres Dee Why, will introduce the concept of good touch or bad touch to children, after they are three years of age. A loving touch can work wonders in toddlers – it gives them an assurance that they are secured. But, there is always a level that is acceptable and what is not.

It is the duty of the caregiver to instil this safety measure in the minds of the toddlers without creating anxiety in them. It is because, this is the place where children spend long hours away from their family, hence the caregivers at child care centres Dee Why have to be extra vigilant.

Here is a check-list for the parents to check if a Dee Why children's centre provides the highest standards of personal safety of the children, they are –

Transparent Rooms and Enough Students

Always check if the centre owns rooms that are open and clearly visible from outside. The rooms should have open spaces, with bright lit nooks and corners. Though you might be of the intention that if there is a fewer number of students, they might get proper care, but this is not the case, your child will be much safer when the headcount of students is more.

CCTV Monitoring

The Dee Why early childhood centre should be thoroughly monitored by CCTV cameras. It should also offer live streaming from the child’s classroom, so that the parents get to watch their child’s activities, dining and sleeping areas.

Buddy Groups

A professional early childhood centre will encourage children to develop buddy groups that help the tots to understand who can be considered into the safe circle. If the kid becomes unhappy, or seems disturbed, they can always discuss with a member of their buddy group.


Never make a decision just by assessing the brochures. You can assess the quality of the staff, their ability to train and handle situations only by having face to face interactions. Check that personally. Also check the staff gender ratio, see to it that there are more number of professional woman caregivers.

A safe environment can be created for the children only when the parents and care givers work together with the right people in the right space. Only in a protected environment the child gets the opportunity to learn and socialise.
