  1. Educational program and practice
  2. Children’s health and safety
  3. Physical environment
  4. Staffing arrangements
  5. Relationships with children
  6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities
  7. Leadership and service management

The Department of Education and Communities (DEC) are responsible for assessing whether our service are addressing these seven quality areas..
