According to the official government website: “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 seven 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 seven quality areas and an overall rating based on these results.”
Kids Capers Childcare Support Manager, Emma Murphy shared the excitement and outlined the intensive process in achieving the rating.
“I’m really, really excited to let you know that Northgate (Kids Capers Childcare) has recently gone through their assessment and rating process, assessed against the National Quality Standards of the National Quality Framework, and we have received exceeding which is really, really exciting,” Ms Murphy said in the video above.
“Our team here has worked really, really hard the last 12 months to really progress towards this.
“I’m really excited to be able to support them in their roles.
“Kids Capers has shown a really big focus on professional development for our educators, so that their knowledge definitely grows.
“I’ve been through this process personally myself seven times since the National Quality Framework did change.
“But it’s very definitely rewarding, and it’s a time to show the families, the children, the community, how much we do shine.
“We are always wanting the best for children, and there’s no such thing as too high expectations for children in the early years.
“As long as our expectations keep heightening, they’re getting the best outcomes every day.
“Exceeding definitely comes back to not just the support manager, not just the leadership team, it comes back to our amazing, dedicated educators.
“And that’s what Kid’s Capers is all about.
“It’s about them walking in the door with the biggest smiles on their face, wanting to make a difference every day,” Ms Murphy concluded.
