NATIONAL QUALITY FRAMEWORK

The National Quality Framework (NQF) is the result of an agreement between all Australian governments to work together to provide better educational and developmental outcomes for children using education and care services.

The NQF introduces a new quality standard to improve education and care across long day care, family day care, preschool/kindergarten, and outside school hours care.


The NQF helps ensure your child is given the best possible start in life.  For the first time, every state and territory in Australia is working to achieve the same quality outcomes for children, no matter where they live.  Major benefits for parents and children in long day care, family day care, preschools, kindergartens and outside school hours care services are:

  • greater individual care and attention for children

  • better support for children’s learning and development

  • educators with increased skills and qualifications

  • improved educator to child ratios in most services

  • a ratings system of education and care services.


To find out more about the NQF and how it affects you and your child, visit the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) website:  http://www.acecqa.gov.au/families
