  • 2. 

    If a facility has been running for a number of years and offering a standard of care with which parents are satisfied, if it falls below the recommended space standard, this is grounds enough for local authority to close it down.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if a facility has been operating for a long time and providing satisfactory care, but does not meet the recommended space standard, the local authority can close it down. However, the correct answer is false. While not meeting space standards may be a concern, it alone is not sufficient grounds for closure. The local authority would need to consider other factors such as the quality of care, safety measures, and compliance with regulations before making a decision to close the facility.

    The introduction of the Children Act did not affect the arrangements for making criminal record checks.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The introduction of the Children Act did not affect the arrangements for making criminal record checks. This means that the procedures and requirements for conducting criminal record checks remained the same even after the Children Act was implemented. The Act did not bring any changes or modifications to the existing arrangements for conducting these checks. Therefore, the statement is true.

  • 4. 

    Whose responsibility is it to obtain a full employment history for someone working with children?

    • A.

      The employer

    • B.

      The employee

    • C.

      The parents

    Correct Answer
    A. The employer
    Explanation
    The responsibility to obtain a full employment history for someone working with children lies with the employer. It is the employer's duty to conduct thorough background checks and verify the employment history of potential employees to ensure the safety and well-being of the children under their care. This is important as it helps identify any previous instances of misconduct or red flags that may pose a risk to the children. By taking on this responsibility, the employer can make informed decisions about hiring individuals who are suitable for working with children.

  • 5. 

    Criminal record checks alone are sufficient as a means of preventing children being exposed to the risk of abuse.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Criminal record checks alone are not sufficient as a means of preventing children from being exposed to the risk of abuse. While these checks can provide some information about a person's past criminal activities, they do not guarantee that an individual will not engage in abusive behavior in the future. It is important to have comprehensive child protection measures in place, such as regular training for staff, thorough background checks, and strong policies and procedures, to ensure the safety and well-being of children.

    • B.

      1:8

    • C.

      1:16

    Correct Answer
    B. 1:8
    Explanation
    The sessional day care staffing ratio for 3 to 5-year olds is 1:8. This means that for every 8 children in this age group, there should be 1 staff member present. This ratio ensures that there is adequate supervision and attention given to each child, promoting their safety and well-being during their time at the day care.

    Rate this question:

    The statement suggests that it is mandatory to have a trained first aider in a day nursery. However, the correct answer is false. This implies that it is not mandatory to have a trained first aider in a day nursery.
