I was informed on Friday afternoon that our Assessment and Rating has been finalised with an EXCEEDING rating!
For a first service review this is an exceptional outcome.
Our assessor reported,
“Your service is commended on its achievements in providing quality outcomes for children; in particular, an educational program that responds to children’s interests and scaffolds their learning, as well as staffing arrangements that enhance children’s learning and wellbeing, demonstrating the commitment to quality by educators at your service.”
Congratulations to the team at Newcastle West, your hard work and professional focus are appreciated and recognised by all!
