Child Protection and Child Safe Standards (PROTECT)

Maribyrnong Kindergarten has zero tolerance for child abuse. 

We are committed to providing a safe environment where all children are safe, feel safe and empowered, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with diverse learning needs. 

Every person involved in Maribyrnong Kindergarten has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.

You can get 24/7 family violence help by calling safesteps on 1800 015 188 or email safesteps@safesteps.org.au. The safe steps website has a web chat support service available Monday to Friday from 9am Р9pm.
