We would like to share with everyone, an insight of the National Quality Standards. As we are a new centre ,we are always looking of a way not only to improve our self but also to have our parent/Guardian contribution and feedback/input to our centre. We have a Quality improvement folder which is an ongoing document to note all improvements that occur within the centre.
Quality area 1: To ensure the educational program is stimulating and engaging ,and enhances children's learning and development.
Quality area 2:To promote children's health and safety,minimise risks and protect children from harm,injury and infection.
Quality area 3:To have a physical environment that is safe ,suitable and provides rich and diverse range of experiences that promote children's learning and development.
Quality area 4:To ensure an active engaging learning environment , providing qualified and experienced educators who are able to develop warm,respectful relationships with children ,creating a safe environment and encouraging children's active learning within the learning program.
Quality area 5: To promote relationships with children that are responsive, respectful and promote children's sense of security and belonging .Allowing children to explore the environment and engage in play and learning.
Quality area 6: To collaborate and recognise active relationships with families are fundamental to achieving quality outcomes for children ,and that community partnerships are based on active communication and collaboration are also essential.
Quality are 7: To support effective leadership and management of the service that contributes to a quality environment for children's learning and development. Well-documented policy and procedures, well maintained records , shared values ,clear direction and reflective practices enable the service to function as a learning community. An ongoing cycle of planning and review including engagement with families ,creates a setting for continuous improvement.
