Rosny centre’s rising rating

THE results from Clarence City Council’s Rosny Early Learning Assessment and Ratings accreditation have been announced, with the service officially ‘Exceeding’ the National Quality Standard.

Services across Australia are assessed by the Education and Care Unit and rated against seven quality areas: education program and practice; children’s health and safety; physical environment; staffing arrangements; relationships with children; collaborative partnerships with families and communities; and governance and leadership.

Rosny Early Learning families and council staff gathered for afternoon tea at the Montagu Bay centre recently to celebrate the result, which is a big improvement on the previous assessment in 2018 and puts the service in the top 34 percent in the state.

Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said council was extremely proud to offer such a high standard of care to local families.

“Rosny Early Learning management and staff have worked extremely hard over the past two and a half years to make a number of positive changes in the service,” he said.

“These include the outstanding garden renovation, changes to the physical environment indoors, improved sustainability practices within the service, and the introduction of an online communication and programming platform.

“Young families make up a huge part of the fabric of our community in Clarence and I am immensely proud of the service that council provides during those busy early years of family life.

“I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to the council staff who have worked so hard to provide this wonderful space for our children, especially during the challenges of the last two years due to COVID.”
