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).
The Education Review Office reported no major concerns on 14/06/2013. The Education Review Office says it will visit again in 4 years from this date.
