i have been stuck on this assessment for months and need help with some of the questions.

Q2. You are the lead educator in the toddler room and Brayden is a two year old boy in your care. He is usually collected by Aunty Karen who stays and plays for a while when she picks him up of an afternoon. You haven’t seen Karen for a few days and then one morning she comes to visit Brayden and asks to play with him in your room for a while.

That afternoon, Brayden’s mother comes to pick him up and you tell her that Karen was there this morning. She tells you she does not want Karen seeing Brayden anymore as they are no longer talking. You have observed that Karen and Brayden have a very close loving relationship.

Ok, so you need to provide some of your responses so I can see your understanding.

Just write what you think of each question and I'll check it for you.

Hi there
Give two reasons why the policy needs to be reviewed regularly?

1. The regularly reviewing of policies which more consistent and effective, and they help protect everyone not risk or harm.

This is my teacher comment. Please complete – can you clarify your answer here? Why does the policy need to be reviewed? I believe you are focusing on staff reading and understanding the policy not the review process.

2. Reviewed to meet any updated policy from emergency services. yes

Please can you help with the answer 1 I did try a lot but still not correct.
