We aim to provide continuity of care for the children where possible and aim to employ experienced and qualified staff who are familiar to the children to ensure quality programs, interactions and environments for the children. At times it is necessary to employ agency staff to ensure that we meet ratio requirements  and in the event of staff absences or illness. Where possible, we aim to employ experienced agency staff from a well known children’s services agency who are known to the children and families at Kew Kids ELC.
