All our educators at Sky Tree Kids conduct child protection training to enable them to recognise any signs of child abuse whether that be emotional, physical or sexual abuse. By law, all educators are ‘mandatory reports’ meaning they must make a report to Child Safety if there is a reasonable suspicious that a child has suffered, is suffering, may be suffering or is at an unacceptable risk of suffering significant harm caused by emotional, physical or sexual abuse.
