Protection concept for the day care centres of the Studierendenwerk Vorderpfalz

According to §8a SGB VIII, day care centres have a statutory duty to protect children in the event of a risk to their welfare.
When dealing with the issue of child endangerment, it is necessary to consider the various ways in which children can be put at risk. It is important to accept the fact that boundaries have been crossed and to take various precautionary measures. Only then will educational professionals be able to deal with the situation professionally and act quickly and safely in acute cases.

As the responsible body, we see it as our most important task to create the best possible conditions for the children entrusted to us in order to support their successful development. This includes not only taking children seriously, but also protecting them from boundary violations to the best of our knowledge and belief.
This concept should help us to critically review our everyday life time and again and to develop a culture that enables children and adults to seek help and support in critical situations.
