ACECQA's Occasional Paper 4
ACECQA has published its fourth occasional paper, analysing one of the most challenging areas of the National Quality Standard (NQS), Quality Area 3 – Physical environment. The NQS assesses the safety and suitability of the physical environment, as well as whether it offers a rich and diverse range of experiences that promote children’s learning and development.
To assist services to meet this aspect of the NQS, sustainable environments was selected as one of the focus areas for ACECQA’s Quality Practice Workshops which are run in conjunction with state and territory regulatory authorities. The highlights of these workshops will be available on the ACECQA website in August.
