Rating & Assessment

National Quality Standard

Assessment of services

All services approved under the Education and Care Services National Law are assessed and rated by their state or territory regulatory authority.

Services are assessed against the 7 quality areas of the National Quality Standard (NQS) and given an overall rating based on these results.

The ratings are:

  • Excellent rating, awarded by ACECQA
  • Exceeding National Quality Standard
  • Meeting National Quality Standard
  • Working Towards National Quality Standard
  • Significant Improvement Required

This chart is an informational tool and is not required to be displayed under the National Law or Regulations. More information about ratings and the National Quality Framework is available on the ACECQA website: www.acecqa.gov.au. Quality ratings of assessed services are published on the national registers.

Ratings promote transparency and accountability and help parents assess the quality of education and care services available.
