The central focus of our educational programs is on outcomes for students. Our programs are based on an approved learning framework which considers the developmental needs, interests and experiences of each child, and takes into account the individual differences of each child. 


Our kindergarten operates in accordance with the National Quality Standards (NQS) under the Education & Care Services National Law and Regulations. In September 2012 the service was assessed under the National Quality Standards (NQS) as a children’s service meeting all quality standards. The seven Quality Areas under the NQS are: 


1. Educational program & practice 

2. Children’s health & safety 

3. Physical environment

4. Staffing arrangements

5. Relationships with children 

6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities 

7. Leadership and service management


The Standard ensures that our service adopts approaches that are most appropriate to and focus on the best outcomes for the children being educated at Yackandandah Kindergarten.
