Working with Children and Police Checks
changes have occurred in the back office by introducing
an additional safety check to further ensure we are
delivering on our mission and serving as a role model of
child care excellence.
We are very
serious on safety, well being, education and level of
care for the children, further we also pride ourselves
on ensuring our Team Members, Teachers & Educators are
the best choice for our centre to providing high quality
care and education to our children and families.
you may ask? We now conduct a full police check for all
Team Members that join Kidi Kingdom, this is in addition
to holding a valid BlueCard before being able to care
Child Care is a team of committed, positive, successful
people who are always endeavouring to be balanced,
integrated and honest."
difference you may ask? The Working with Children
Check (commonly known as BlueCard) and the National
Police Check are two different types of checks conducted
on a person. The Working with Children Check (BlueCard)
is an ongoing assessment of a person's eligibility to
work or volunteer with children and involves a check of
a person's national criminal history and other
disciplinary and police information. This working with
children check (BlueCard) once issued will be valid and
lasts 3 years from date of issue.
We here at
Kidi Kingdom would like to ensure that any new employees
(Team Members) who must hold a current Working with
Children (BlueCard), are also reviewed by conducting a
Police Check at the time of joining Kidi Kingdom to
ensure no police related matters have occurred from when
the Blue Card was issued till current. By requesting a
full Police Check that is up to date & current on the
day of issue, it lists any offences from a person's
criminal history which can be disclosed. We wanted to
share this information for you to be aware that we are
very serious on who we allow to care and educate your
children, and this Police Check is only 1 of many checks
we do before and for determining a prospective new Team
Member to join Kidi Kingdom.
What is a
National Police Check? Itís a summary of any
personís police history information in Australia. Checks
can be conducted on Australian citizens or anyone
residing in Australia. It is a government service
provided to either an individual or organisation for
employment, voluntary work and occupation-related
licensing or registration purposes.
employers require them? Many employers find a police
check beneficial to reduce the risk of theft, fraud or
other criminal activity performed by a potential new
employee. However, in industries where employees are
working with children, the elderly or other vulnerable
communities, police checks are vital for an organisation
to be aware and make decisions to rule out employing
people who are past offenders. The most common purpose
is for pre-employment screening so that employers can
more objectively assess the risk posed by individuals
and ensure safe environments for what are considered
"vulnerable" or "special needs" populations (such as
children, the aged and those with disabilities).
