If you are looking for high quality child care in Vic Park or any Perth suburb, you have come to the right place. But how do you know when your child is receiving high quality child care? Let’s take a look at how high quality child care is currently defined in Australia.
High quality child care can be provided in a brand new building with all of the bells and whistles or it can be provided in an ordinary facility that looks like it has been around forever.
All child care facilities in Vic Park and across Australia are subject to the National Quality Framework and the National Quality Standards. These are great ways to assess a child care facility against minimum standards as set forth by the Australian Government. Every child care centre is required to display their ratings so that parents and prospective parents can see them.
Finding a High Quality Child Care Centre
But is that really enough? We don’t think so. We think the best way to find out about a child care centre is to spend some time there and watch what they are doing. We think you should rate what you see in four areas: caring, respectful, tuned in and safe/secure.
Caring and Tuned In
We only hire people who are passionate and dedicated to providing the best in child care. This results in our people always being caring and tuned in. This involves listening to what a child says while paying attention to nonverbal signals, too. It involves watching for subtle clues about how the child feels and picking up on those clues when interacting with the child. Most of all, it involves spending their time with the children instead of chatting with other adults.
This is easily determined. Carers should treat children with respect and never condescend.
Safe and Secure
You should always feel that your child is safe and secure. If the carers are caring, tuned in and respectful, you will feel that your children are safe. Also, we “vet” our prospective employees better than any child care facility in the Perth area.
