St Nicholas Early Education Newcastle West awarded ‘Exceeding’ rating by ACECQA


St Nicholas Early Education Newcastle West recently underwent its assessment and rating with the Australian Children’s Education & Care Authority (ACECQA) and achieved an ‘Exceeding’ rating.

An ‘Exceeding’ rating is one of the highest ratings an education and care service can achieve under the National Quality Framework.

St Nicholas Early Education’s General Operations Manager, Kerri Armstrong, had this to say of the achievement: “An Exceeding rating really demonstrates the investment and commitment of our educators to the quality program that’s offered [at Newcastle West].”

“ACECQA rates us on our health and safety, on our program, on our collaboration with the community, and our investment to the leadership and management of quality services in early childhood education. At Newcastle West, we’re incredibly proud of that rating that we’ve received.”

According to ACECQA’s website, “The awarding of the Exceeding rating by ACECQA indicates that a service is embracing continuous quality improvement and practice, and are evolving over time to improve outcomes for children and families at the highest level.”

“It also recognises providers who are champions of quality improvement, innovative leaders beyond the service, and are raising the bar on quality education and care for Australian children.”

Newcastle West’s Co-Centre Director, Brittney Miller was also especially proud of the achievement.

“Myself as the Co-Director and the educators of Newcastle West are really proud of our Exceeding rating that we’ve received with ACECQA after our accreditation and rating,” Brittney said.

“We really do place a lot of value on offering high-quality care within our service and to be benchmarked by ACECQA at that Exceeding rating is something that we place a lot of importance on, especially after only being open for a 12-month period.”
