National Quality Standard

The National Quality Standard sets a new benchmark for quality education and care services. It gives families a better understanding of a quality service. This enables families to make informed decisions about the services providing education and care to their child.


  1. Educational program and practice
  2. Children’s health and safety
  3. Physical Environment
  4. Staffing arrangements
  5. Relationships with children
  6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
  7. Leadership and service management

Under the National Quality Standard all services must prepare a quality improvement plan annually that includes a self assessment of the quality of the practices of the service against the National Quality Standard and the National Regulations. We involve all our staff and families when developing goals for our QIP. Our Quality improvement plan is located in the preschool office if you would like to read it.


Inaburra Preschool was assessed under the National Quality Standards in November of 2013. Our preschool received a rating of Exceeding in all seven Quality Areas. You can view our ratings certificate by clicking here.
