Who is this for?

New Early Childhood Safe Sleep Regulations mention training on three separate occasions, highlighting the importance of ongoing learning in this area.
1) To adequately fulfil their roles and responsibilities, nominated supervisors and educators should regularly receive information and undertake training on best practice approaches to safe sleep and rest and on the service’s sleep and rest policies and procedures.
2) A risk assessment should cover the level of knowledge and training of the staff supervising children during sleep and rest periods.
3) Policies and Procedures should cover the induction, training and knowledge of staff at the service in relation to best practice for children’s sleep and rest.
Ensure you and your team are up to date and meeting regulations.

How Will I Learn?

At Making Education, we want to make a difference by making it different.

We have redesigned what eLearning means, to bring you a sequenced and well thought out learning experience.

As you navigate this course, you will find that you have a facilitator guiding you on your journey. This will be used to ensure you stay on the right path and always know where you’re at.

Milestones and modules will also be used to break up the information into bite sized pieces, so that it all makes sense.

Quizzes and questions will provide you with learner feedback, helping you to get a sense for where you’ve been, and where you’re going on the journey.

Further learning and extension activities are also scattered throughout the course to provide you with rich reflection and opportunities to extend your knowledge further.

At the end of each section, you will be guided back to how this might be transferred to an early learning work environment to support you in implementing high quality education and care for all children.

For the best learning experience, we recommend full engagement with the learning materials and following the reflective prompts, questions and further learning tasks which will assist you to turn theory and knowledge into hands on practices and strategies.

Our eLearning modules are indented to provide learners with hands on and real world strategies, ideas and concepts which are ready to be implemented in your current workplace, whether that be a daycare, childcare, early learning or family day care environment.

At Making Education, we also advocate and recommend that once you have finished, you don’t rush on to the next task but instead sit for at least 10 – 15 minutes upon completion to reflect on your learning and let it sink in. This thinking time will support you to more effectively turn what you’ve just learnt into actionable steps to update and add to your current practices.

Underpinning this course are our in-house designed and developed Course Learning Outcomes (CLO’s).

L.O 1 – Identify and Understand the Early Childhood requirements, national laws, and regulations surrounding safe sleep.

L.O 2 – Define the meaning of common terminology surrounding sleep and young children.

L.O 3 – Explore what best practice looks like within an Early Childhood Service.

L.O 4 – Analyse and Evaluate the importance and significance of key safe sleep practices.

L.O 5 – Explore and understand how you can implement core safe sleep practices within your current work context.

L.O 6 – Identify and access core materials, resources and links that you can use within your service to support both colleagues and parents.
