National Quality Standards

The National Quality Standards set a national benchmark for the quality of education and care services.  

Quality Area 5 – Relationships with children 

The aim of Quality Area 5 under the National Quality Standard is to promote relationships with children that are responsive, respectful and promote children’s sense of security and belonging. Relationships of this kind free children to explore the environment and engage in play and learning. At Macquarie Hills Community Prechool we endeavour to foster positive relationships and strong bonds with each and every child in our care. By creating a safe and secure environment we encourage and support each child to develop a sense of belonging. This allows them to develop the confidence to explore, thrive and flourish.
