Understanding sleep & safe sleep practices in early childhood education and care

$112.50$101.25 Member Price

Sleep is important to the overall health, wellbeing and development of infants and children. Children who do not sleep well may struggle to learn and regulate their behaviour. This can also affect the wellbeing and health of families, and may impact the child’s experience in early education and care services.

Developed by Early Childhood Australia (ECA) and the Centre for Community Child Health, Murdoch Children’s Research Institute (MCRI), this professional learning series contains three comprehensive and highly practical online learning modules which examine the importance of sleep to infant and child health, wellbeing, learning and development in line with the introduction of safe sleep and rest practices (ACECQA, 2017). This learning series has been developed with support from the Ian Potter Foundation.
