What’s an NQS rating?

The National Quality Standard (NQS) is a Government supported plan that aims to raise quality in early childhood education and care services.

To check whether a service is offering a high-quality program, NQS is looking at 7 quality areas that are important outcomes for children, from health and safety to relationship with children.
