Space Requirements For Children Within A Rooom

Post by Bec123 » Wed May 01, 2019 9:25 pm

I have no idea how to start a new thread yet as I’m a new member, but I’m just curious to know if there is a reg on the amount of space each child needs in a room in QLD (e.g. how many square metres does each child need?).
The toddlers room (15months-2years) at my centre is very small, however admin are allowing 14 children to occupy that space with 3 educators.
Any advice?
Cheers :)

Hi!

In the National Regulations, it states the following:

" The approved provider of an education and care service must ensure that, for each child being educated and cared for by the service, the education and care service premises has at least 3.25 square metres of unencumbered indoor space."

"The approved provider of an education and care service must ensure that, for each child being educated and cared for by the service, the education and care service premises has at least 7 square metres of unencumbered outdoor space".

Reference:
National Regulations

Hope this helps!
