It is paramount that all information concerning each child is kept confidential. Basic details are collected on enrolment directly from families such as names, addresses, phone contacts but it is also necessary for staff to collect details regarding the child’s name, date of birth, medical details, health, routines, likes and dislikes.
The Service is required to hold information regarding each child’s Child Care Benefit entitlements. This information is used for processing fees and allocating payments such as CCB and CCR. Some of the information collected is to satisfy the services legal obligations under the relevant childcare legislation. This information will be made available to DET.
The Service will ensure at all times that the details kept about each family are accurate, complete and up to date. We also have an obligation to protect this information from misuse or loss and from unauthorised access or disclosure.
