It can be tricky being caught between parents, new partners of parents, and lawyers and it's never easy trying to determine what information if any you can and should share and where the line is between privacy rights and responsibilities and duties as a parent.
This article discusses key issues that have arisen, and may arise for an early childhood service when parents separate. These include whom to release a child to, what information to share, talking to the lawyer representing the child and dealing with requests from anyone else for information.
To help you in getting started in developing a written policy for your ECE service, possible policy points/recommendations are given for you to consider, discuss amongst your team and to consult with families and others.
This page is open to ECE Centre and Home-based ECE Service, Tertiary Education, Department and Institution members.
