Child Protection Statement

Young Horizon’s policy with child protection is to promote overall welfare and development of the child, contributing to the growth of his or her self-esteem and personal autonomy. Young Horizons aims to achieve this by creating an environment where trust, respect, equity and, in particular, a real willingness to listen to children is established and where a focus on what is in the interests of the child is the guiding principle. In compliance with the 2012 Children First guidelines, see below for links to our Child Protection Statement and policies.
