Educational presentations for Childcare Professionals
 

In South Australia the Safe Infant Sleeping Standards are best practice indicators for all persons working/volunteering with parents and/or caregivers with infants under 12 months of age.

 

These Standards require staff to be able to effectively promote and model safe infant sleep practices and environments. The standards apply to staff in all facilities and settings and ensure that parents and caregivers receive consistent and accurate information and the opportunity to observe recommended safe sleeping practices.

 

The South Australian Safe Infant Sleeping Standards closely mirror the recommendations for safe infant sleeping.

 

SIDS and Kids SA offer the following educational opportunities to childcare professionals.
