#81 Being an Approved Provider (with Jenni Hutchins, CEO of Big Fat Smile)

This week we briefly discuss the Labor Party’s plans to crackdown on freebies and giveaways to families to get more enrolments, before chatting with CEO of Big Fat Smile Jenni Hutchins.

As CEO of an organisation with more than over 40 children’s services, Jenni is also the Approved Provider for Big Fat Smile under the National Quality Framework. Jenni discusses navigating the compliance and regulatory system as an Approved Provider, supporting Nominated Supervisors with their legal obligations, and how to lead and support an organisation during a prosecution.
