The NSW Quality Rating certificate is designed to give families important information, at-a-glance, about the overall rating of your service as well as against each of the quality areas.
The quality ratings are displayed in an easy-to-follow star graphic designed to give families important information about the overall rating of a service, as well as rating against each of the quality areas.
Each star is a different colour with pink representing ‘Significant Improvement Required,’ Yellow representing ‘Working Towards National Quality Standard,’ Green representing ‘Meeting National Quality Standard,’ Blue representing ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’ and the Multi-coloured tick representing ‘Excellent Rated by ACECQA’
Bright and bold and easy for parents to understand, ratings will need to be displayed in a prominent place where they can easily be seen by anyone entering the service including potential families.
The Department of Education has developed some resources to help guide your conversations with families or to share more information about Quality Ratings with families.
