NEW RATINGS: Every CQ childcare centre’s performance

MOST child care centres in Rockhampton and Central Queensland are exceeding or meeting national quality standards.

The Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority uses seven criteria to rate early childhood education and outside school hours care centres under its National Quality Standard.

Those criteria are 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.

Providers are given overall ratings, which were updated today, based on these results.

In Central Queensland, 37 providers are exceeding the NQS, 50 are meeting it, and 11 are not meeting the standards.
