Dealing with Family Law Issues in Preschools and Schools

DECS has developed guidelines to help preschools and schools deal with family law related issues. These guidelines attempt to balance the obligations and responsibilities of parents with the legal obligations of preschools/schools/staff.

These guidelines are by no means a complete summary of all aspects of the law relating to family relationships but they should cover the majority of situations that will confront staff in their daily activities. All preschools and schools should contact Legislation and Legal Services Unit for particular support.
