Clyde Fenton Preschool meets national standards

Posted 09/08/2018

Clyde Fenton Preschool has been rated Meeting 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.

“An overall rating of Meeting NQS is given to services that provide quality education and care in all seven quality areas,” Principal Jeff Parker said.

“Our Preschool was particularly commended on our engaging learning areas, resources and positive interactions with children. We are so proud to offer such a warm and nurturing environment”, said Miss Marzocchi, Preschool Teacher.

The National Quality Framework (NQF) for early childhood education and care was agreed by all Australian governments to get better educational and development outcomes for children using education and care services.

Implementation of the NQF is guided by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
