Can I use the Online TLDS platform as a record keeping tool? NO!!! Essentially each service will have your own policy regarding retention of documents for a child's record. DET has outlined the legislative requirements (Page 5 of Guide to Information sharing ), but services do have freedom within that legislation to make your own policies regarding child assessments. DET has advised that the Online TLDS should not be used as a record keeping tool, and not relied on to meet kindergartens' document retention obligations - so a copy of the completed TLDS should be maintained as per each kindergarten's service policy.
