Description

More than three-quarters of children’s education and care services assessed under the National Quality Framework (NQF) have a quality rating, according to new data released by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority.

ACECQA Chief Executive Officer Karen Curtis said this was a significant achievement for the national assessment and rating system, with the number of quality rated services increasing by 42% over the past 12 months.

“The National Quality Standard raised the bar on quality and continuous improvement in children’s education and care, with 69% now rated ‘Meeting’ or ‘Exceeding’ the NQS compared with 66% 12 months ago,” Ms Curtis said.

Snapshot highlights include:

  • 15,333 children’s education and care services operating across Australia
  • 76% of these (11,727) have received a quality rating
  • 45 services have been rated as Excellent by ACECQA
  • 684 reassessments have been undertaken, with 67% resulting in an improved overall quality rating.
