The Child Safe Standards - Early childhood services

Advice for implementing the Child Safe Standards in early childhood services.

The new standards started on 1 July 2022

Early childhood services must update their systems, practices and policies to comply with the new Standards.

Until 31 December 2022, the Quality Assessment and Regulation Division (QARD) will continue to work with the Commission for Children and Young People (CCYP) to regulate the new Standards.

On 1 January 2023 QARD will become the sole regulator of the Standards in the early childhood sector.
