The National Quality Standard


This book assists early childhood educators, in whatever service or setting, to meet the requirements of the National Quality Standard.

It provides a background to the National Quality Framework, discusses the development of a QIP, including identifying strengths and determining quality improvement, and looks closely at the assessment and rating process, and how services can prepare for this and work towards developing the best possible service for their communities, families and children.

Within each quality area the standards are identified, and each element is elaborated on and addressed though a number of questions, designed to stimulate reflection, guide discussion and support early childhood educators as they identify their strengths, and plan for improvement. In this way, professional learning plans can be identified and the deployment of limited resources more efficiently targeted.

The seven quality areas are each addressed by acknowledged experts in the field.
