Celebrating National Quality Standard Results at MELC!

Moranbah Early Learning Centre are pleased to announce that we were recently acknowledged for our achievements in ‘Meeting’ the National Quality Standard and striving for quality outcomes for children!

In June this year (2022) we went through the Assessment and Rating process by ACECQA. The team at Moranbah Early Learning Centre demonstrated Meeting the National Quality Standard in all seven quality areas: educational program and practice, children’s health and safety, physical environment, staffing arrangements, relationships with children, collaborative partnerships with families and communities and governance and leadership.

What is the Assessment and Rating process?

All education and care services such as ours are assessed and rated by their state and territory regulatory authority. Services are assessed against the 7 quality areas of the National Quality Standard and then are given a rating for each of the 7 quality areas and an overall rating based on these results.

Why do services get rated?

The aim of the National Quality Standards is to improve the quality and consistency of education and care across Australia. It also helps parents and carers make informed choices about what service is best for your child.

We will be highlighting some of the amazing feedback we received as we are very proud. Here is one such comment we received:

“The service is to be commended for demonstrating some high-quality practices … for example, educators developed the educational program based on their knowledge of each child to ensure interactions, experiences and routines engaged each child and were relevant to them, being respectful of children’s backgrounds and that recognised and built on their current strengths, abilities and interests, which maximised opportunities for children’s learning. “

We would like to thank everyone who was involved in this process including approved providers, centre managers, educators, families and children. It’s the collective ongoing passion, commitment and motivation to provide a quality education and care program here in Moranbah.
