Our Curriculum

Our Lifelong Learning Curriculum has specific programs for babies, toddlers and 3-5-year-old children. Helping each age group realise their full potential.


National Quality Framework

Our centre practices, policies and procedures aligned with legislative expectations as outlined in the National Quality Framework. This means that every effort is made to comply with the Education and Care Services National Law and Education and Care Services National Regulation, the approved learning frameworks and the National Quality Standards.

Copies of the Law, Regulations, learning frameworks and quality standards are available at your centre. Please ask your Centre Manager for more information.

The National Quality Standards (NQS) consist of seven key areas centres are assessed and rated against every 2-5 years.
