Our mission is to provide quality Early Childhood Programmes in a safe, supportive environment where children are nurtured and valued as competent individuals.
National Quality Framework (NQF) for Kindergartens
Research shows quality education and care early in life leads to better health, education and employment outcomes later in life.
The early years are critical for establishing self-esteem, resilience, healthy growth and capacity to learn.
Quality education and care shapes every child's future and lays the foundation for development and learning.
The National Quality Framework (NQF) was the result of an agreement between all Australian governments to work together to provide better educational and developmental outcomes for children.
The NQF has quality standards to improve education and care across long day care, family day care, preschools, Kindergartens and outside school hours care services.
The NQF helps ensure your child is given the best possible start to life.
Benefits for families include:
- Greater individual care and attention for children
- Better support for children's learning and development through the approved Early Years Learning Framework
- Educators with increased skills and qualifications
- Improved educator to child ratios in most services
- A new rating system of education and care services
Under the NQF, a Kindergarten Provider must attain certain levels of compliance in order to meet the National Quality Standards (NQS) and gain approval to operate.
In our most recent assessment, we proudly achieved an overall rating of Exceeding National Standard against the NQS.
