Below is a brief guide to the Assessment and Rating process under which Child Care services are rated
What are the ratings criteria?
Early childhood education and care services (long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten, outside school hours care) are assessed and rated against the National Quality Standard (NQS) to:
The NQS is part of the National Regulations and includes 7 quality areas that are important to children’s learning and developmental outcomes.
Each RA manages its assessment schedule in a responsive manner, making adjustments to the schedule as new information emerges and making best use of their available resources.
It usually takes a regulatory authority 10 weeks to assess and rate a service. The rating report or rating certificate should be made available to families.
How do RAs ensure that services keep delivering quality after receiving their rating?
RAs make unscheduled and scheduled visits to services in addition to assessment and rating visits. These include monitoring, spot check and compliance visits to ensure the service is operating within the national legislation.
