Discussion paper

The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) has published its eighth occasional paper, marking the first decade of the National Quality Framework (NQF) for children’s education and care.

The NQF includes the Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations, which outline the minimum standards and requirements that all providers must meet in order to operate services. It also includes the National Quality Standard, which sets the benchmark for service quality.

The paper provides a high-level overview of the NQF, highlights a number of changes over the last 10 years, and summarises a range of projects and strategies in place to ensure the NQF remains fit for purpose.
