Children's Rights - The Key to Child Safety

Early childhood educators can do a lot to keep young children safe. This workshop explores strategies and practices for educators to promote the basic human rights of children - including the right to feel safe and be safe, to have a voice, the opportunity to learn and thrive, and freedom from discrimination. A 'child's rights' approach recognizes that even at a young age, children have the capacity to understand and communicate their needs - it is important that we listen to them about issues affecting them and take their views seriously.

There are many teachable moments where educators can promote these rights and empower children to be resilient, confident and connected to their world.

This workshop presents a 2020 vision of what it means to be a child safe organisation. It incorporates the 1989 United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations (released in February 2019) and references the ECA Supporting young children's rights - Statement of Intent (2015-2018)
