A safe and inclusive centre can lead to high NQS Ratings

48% of early learning services are rated Working Towards NQS in 3-5 quality areas. 

The design, layout, furniture, and equipment at your centre all affect the learning experiences of children in your care – as well as your centre’s Quality Area 3 (QA3) ratings. Services failing to meet NQS ratings in one or more Quality Areas can find it harder to remain competitive. 

We’ve prepared a guide to help you with practical ideas for improving NQS Ratings in QA3:

  • Suggestions to design your centre’s indoor and outdoor environments
  • Vital safety tips for sleep areas in line with guidance from health professionals
  • Using Programming and Planning (P&P) tools to document learning outcomes
  • Developing processes for successful Assessment and Ratings (A&R)
