Exceeding National Quality Standard 

Prepare Early Education at Baulkham Hills completed the mandatory assessment and rating process with the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). To receive the rating of “Exceeding”, the Centre must go beyond the National Quality Standard in 4 out of 7 quality areas.

According to ACECQA, exceeding practice is embedded in service operations, informed by critical reflection, and shaped by meaningful engagement with families and community. These themes are applied to the 7 Quality Areas:
  • Quality Area 1 – Educational program and practice
  • Quality Area 2 – Children’s health and safety
  • Quality Area 3 – Physical environment
  • Quality Area 4 – Staffing arrangements
  • Quality Area 5 – Relationships with children
