What is the National Quality Standard?
The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets benchmarks for the quality of children’s education and care services in Australia. The NQS highlights the importance of children’s development and education as well as relationships with families. Services are assessed and rated against seven quality areas, 15 standards and 40 elements that make up the NQS. Each service receives an overall NQS rating and a rating for each of the seven quality areas.

What are the national quality standard ratings?
There are four overall ratings:

  • Significant Improvement Required
  • Working Towards National Quality Standard
  • Meeting National Quality Standard
  • Exceeding National Quality Standard

What rating has CPCK received?
In October 2018, CPCK was assessed by an assessment and compliance officer from the Department of Education. The outcome of this assessment process is that CPCK has been rated overall as ‘Exceeding the National Quality Standard’;  with an ‘Exceeding’ rating for Quality Area 1 : Educational Program and Practice; Quality Area 5 : Relationships with children; Quality Area 6 : Collaborative partnerships with families and communities and Quality Area 7 : Governance & Leadership.

Collaroy Plateau Community Kindergarten recognises the importance of acknowledging the history of First Nations People. We acknowledge and respect the values and customs of the traditional custodians of the land where our preschool is situated.

We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging for they hold the memories, traditions, culture and hope of Indigenous Australians. First Nations people protected songlines for well over 40,000 years, raising and teaching their children and creating the first footprints on Country. We extend our hand in friendship as we now walk together with respect for each other and the common goal of protecting the land and all of her inhabitants.
