Developing management policies for child behaviour practices
Our Providing Positive Guidance [PDF, 4.8 MB] booklet provides a framework to facilitate and encourage the use of effective positive guidance strategies in early childhood education settings. Please note the wording on the front cover indicating that the document includes references to legislation which is now out of date. The messages in the document are still relevant.
