The National Quality Standard

The National Quality Standard sets a national benchmark for the quality of education and care services.

Helping Families

The National Quality Standard (NQS) was created to help families understand what quality childcare and early childhood education looks like. This helps them assess the service quality offered by different providers of childcare and early childhood education, so they choose what’s best for their child.

The NQS Promotes:

• safety, health and wellbeing of children
• a focus on achieving outcomes for children through high-quality educational programs
• greater understanding by services and families about what distinguishes a quality service.
