Safe transportation of children
New requirements for approved providers of education and care services that offer, or arrange, transportation of children come into effect 1 October 2020.
From today, approved providers will be required to have in place specific policies and procedures relating to transportation, including risk assessments and obtaining written authorisations.

The Education and Care Services National Amendment Regulations 2020 are now available on the NSW Government legislation website.
