Our Centre is rated as 'EXCEEDING' the National Quality Standard with the Assessment and Rating conducted by ACECQA under the new National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care.
The National Quality Framework is designed to ensure that all children get the best possible start in life through a consistently high standard. We are extremely proud of our wonderful team of dedicated educators who achieved this fantstic result.
Our learning through play curriculum and programs are focused on the individual interests and needs of each child and incorporate the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF), Negotiated Emergent Curriculum, National Quality Framework (NQF) as well as the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guidelines.
