If you are looking for child care in Wellard or any Perth suburb, you may have noticed that child care centres are rated by the Government. Every child care centre in Wellard or across Australia is rated in seven areas. We would like to provide you with a brief but concise explanation of what the ratings mean.
Educational Program and Practice
This is the degree to which your child is supported in learning through play.
Child’s Health and Safety
Your child must be protected from injuries and illness that can occur during child care.
The facility must be well-maintained and safe for your child.
The main number here is the ratio between the amount of carers and the amount of children.
Relationships With Children
Your child should be made to feel like he or she fits in and is welcome and supported by the staff.
Partnerships with Families and Communities
Every child care centre should display respect for families, their values and their beliefs.
Leadership and Service Management
This is the extent to which your child is nurtured in a positive environment.
Committed to daily improvement, is a leader in their sector and promotes exceptional care and education.
Exceeding National Quality Standard
This means the child care centre exceeds the standard in four of the seven categories.
Meeting National Quality Standard
The centre provides quality care and education in all of the seven categories.
Working Towards National Quality Standard
One or more categories needs improvement but the care and education program is safe.
Significant Improvement Required
The centre is deficient in at least one of the categories and there is a significant risk for health, wellbeing and safety of the children.
Provisional: Not Yet Assessed Against the National Quality Framework
This means the centre hasn’t been rated yet.
