Excellent rated services

The Excellent rating is the highest rating a service can achieve under the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care. 

The awarding of the Excellent rating indicates that a service is embracing continuous quality improvement. It also recognises providers who are champions of quality improvement and are really raising the bar on what quality education and care looks like for Australian children.

Services that receive ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’ in all 7 quality areas can apply for the Excellent rating. The Excellent rating is awarded for three years. After this time services have the option to re-apply.

You are able to view a listing of services that currently hold the Excellent rating below.
