Statement from Kim Bertino, CEO, Early Childhood Management Services - Incident at Werribee West Family Centre

1 November 2019

We have worked with and assisted the Department of Education and Training over recent months in their investigation of the incident at Werribee West Family Centre. As the matter is now before the courts, we are unable to comment further. 

I would like to reiterate that we remain deeply sorry that this incident occurred and grateful that the children were unharmed.

We have taken significant steps since the incident to further review and enforce procedures at all our sites to protect the safety and well-being of children in our care.
