Learning Links Preschool has just been rated ‘Excellent’ by the Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). This is the highest possible rating for an education and care service to achieve under the National Quality Standard, which sets a national benchmark for the quality of children’s education and care services across Australia.
Learning Links Preschool is one of only 47 services across Australia to receive this accolade. It reflects a service that is innovative, embracing continuous quality improvement and raising the bar on quality education and care for Australian children.
The Preschool was recognised for its collaborative partnerships with the local community, inclusive partnerships with children and families, and practice and environment that enhances children’s learning and growth.
We are thrilled with the ‘Excellent’ rating. Sarah Herbert, our Preschool Manager said, “Learning Links Preschool is honoured to be acknowledged for our dedication to providing the best possible education and care to children and families in the St George and Sutherland regions. Our centre has a long history of providing a high-quality inclusive program where children of all abilities and backgrounds are welcomed, to learn, play and develop side by side.”
“Each day, our educators and therapists work in partnership with families to enhance each child’s participation and learning in the Preschool environment. Our vision is to support a community where difficulty learning is no longer a barrier to a fulfilling life and we are passionate about sharing our inclusive practices so other services can work towards this vision too,” said Ms Herbert.
“We are incredibly proud of our Learning Links Preschool team and see these accomplishments as further acknowledgement of our excellent inclusive program and strong, responsive community engagement. We know the value of our inclusive teaching model and look forward to continuing our role as a leader in the field as we seek to embed these practices more widely in the early childhood sector,” said Birgitte Maibom, Learning Links CEO.
Congratulations to the team and our wonderful Preschool community!
