Greater Dandenong Family Day Care exceeds the national standards
In 2014 Council's Family Day Care was rated as exceeding the National Quality Standard under the National Quality Framework.
The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets a national benchmark for the quality of children’s education and care services across Australia.
Services are assessed against the NQS by the state or territory regulatory authority and receive a rating for each of the seven quality areas of the NQS, as well as an overall rating. The seven quality areas cover; the education program, health and safety, physical environment, staffing, relationships with children, families and communities and the management of the service.
An overall rating of Exceeding NQS is given to services that go above and beyond the requirements of the NQS in at least four of the seven quality areas.
For families using our service this means greater individual care for your child, and better support for children’s learning and development.
