Excellent news for The Green Elephant family, our Rosebery and Waterloo centres have recently received an overwhelming ‘Exceeding’ evaluation from the National Quality Standard (NQS).
Australia has one of the world’s best childcare systems. To ensure a high quality of care for our kids, the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) developed the NQS to maintain and regulate a national standard which all childcare facilities are benchmarked against.
The NQS is scored on seven quality measures which have been set by the National Quality Framework:
1. Education program and practice
2. Children’s health and safety
3. Physical environment
4. Staffing arrangements
5. Relationships with children
6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
7. Leadership and service management
The Green Elephant’s centres have overwhelmingly been rated as Exceeding the National Quality Standard in these areas. We are so proud of all our staff for making sure that every child has the highest quality care every single day.
In order to receive an Exceeding evaluation, a childcare centre only needs to meet the requirements in four out of the seven NQS criteria. Therefore, the majority of Exceeding centres are only meeting those minimum standards.
The Green Elephant are proud to be the only long day care centres in Rosebery and Waterloo to score Exceeding in above six out of the seven NQS criteria.
It’s easy to find out how your child’s centre is performing against the NQS benchmark.
