Exploring safe sleep and rest practices in early childhood settings


ECTARC is excited to deliver professional development webinar training to early childhood services around exploring safe sleep and rest practices in early childhood settings. This training opportunity is funded by the NSW Department of Education through the Early Childhood Sector Development Program.

Ensuring safe sleep and rest is fundamental in caring for and educating young children. As early childhood educators we have a responsibility to provide optimum environments for children to ensure healthy brain development, physical growth, exploration and learning. Interactive and engaging, this webinar will provide educators with a greater understanding of their responsibilities under Regulation 81 and 168 of the Education and Care Services National Regulations and the National Quality Standard.

Participants will be guided in the implementation of quality practices and programs that are informed by the components of the National Quality Framework, where children’s agency is recognised, the diversity of families is acknowledged and respected, and all educators feel confident in their understandings and responsibilities according to service policy and procedures.

This training will be delivered as a two-hour interactive webinar session that can be accessed from the comfort of your service or home. ECTARC’s professional development resource Safe sleep and rest practices – respecting children’s individual needs will be provided to each participant upon completion of the training.


The 2 hour free webinar sessions are open to educators in early childhood services in NSW only.
