Services Must Display Their NQS Rating To Families

  • Written by

Once your service has been through the Assessment and Rating process, approved providers must display their service's Quality Rating so that it is clearly visible to anyone from the main entrance.

Making sure the quality rating is clearly displayed may help generate conversations with families about the professional role of teachers and educators, help them to understand service quality and inform them about the elements that make up a quality service.

Most services receive one of three ratings: ‘Working Towards’, ‘Meeting’ or ‘Exceeding’ NQS.

‘Working Towards’ the NQS does not mean that a service has failed the assessment and rating process. The National Quality Standards was designed to showcase high quality in Australia's services, 'Meeting' indicates a high and challenging bar has been met. 'Working Towards' shows that the service is on a continuous quality journey with identified areas for improvement.

You can promote your service's rating by using a logo. The logos were developed by ACECQA and the Australian, state and territory governments to improve awareness of the NQS.
