Education and Care Services National Regulations

All of our services operate under the Education and Care Services National Regulations. 

These determine what the legal requirements are for a service. 

National Quality Standards

The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets a high national benchmark for early childhood education and care and outside school hours care services in Australia.

The NQS includes 7 quality areas that are important outcomes for children.

Services are assessed and rated by their regulatory authority against the NQS, and given a rating for each of the 7 quality areas and an overall rating based on these results.
