National Quality Standard
Since January 2012, early childhood education and care facilities now operate under a national quality standard that is linked to a national learning framework which recognises that children learn from birth. The National Quality Standard will support the implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework by ensuring that the necessary environments, facilities, staffing arrangements, resources and management structures in early childhood education and care facilities are in place. Combined, these frameworks outline fundamental components to inform and guide educators and management of Brookfield Early Childhood Centre in the delivery of nationally consistent and high quality experiences, programs and care.
This framework is a key mechanism for achieving high quality and drives continuous improvement in early childhood education and care for all families, educators and management of Brookfield Early Childhood Centre. Quality ratings of assessed services are published on the National Register of Services and on the MyChild website.
Brookfield Early Childhood Centre was assessed and rated against the National Quality Standard and Education and Care Services National Regulations, and as such is was awarded in 2014 with the overall rating of ‘Meeting NQS’.
