'Excellent' rating for Lobethal kindy
Congratulations to Lobethal Community Kindergarten for receiving an Excellent rating from the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) in October.
Nature play is a big part of this kindergarten’s program, including off-site bush kindy sessions that have been running for three years.
The service also partners with children, families and the broader community and is a positive workplace with many opportunities for continuous learning.
Lee Munn, Director of Lobethal Community Kindergarten, said she was very proud of her kindy’s achievement.
“We are so excited to receive the Excellent rating,” she said.
“This rating is an acknowledgement of the depth of work and consultation that has occurred with our children, families and community over the last five years.
“We are so thankful that we engaged and persisted with the application process, as it allowed us the opportunity to map, document and share our improvement journey with all stakeholders.”
The Excellent rating is the highest an education and care service can achieve under the National Quality Framework.
Services that receive an Exceeding rating in all seven areas of the National Quality Standard can apply for the overall Excellent rating.
Only nine services in SA have achieved this prestigious rating, out of more than 1100.
