My ECE Rating of this Service:
Three-Star Rating (3 out of 5 stars)
- Qualified Staff: This service has a higher proportion of qualified or trained teachers/ educators.
(Centres with 80% or more qualified teachers within the legal minimum staffing requirement. Home-based services and Playcentres on a higher funding rate for educator training).
- Service Size: The service operates on a small and personal scale for children and families. It is what we call a 'boutique' early childhood service.
- Education Review Office report: The latest ERO report for this service was a positive one (or ERO has yet to make a report available on this service).
Also (1) the emphasis is on early education and family support, (2) parents are actively involved in their children's learning, and (3) free workshops and courses are provided for parents to develop their skills and knowledge.
