Hundreds of childcare centres not up to standard

 

More than 350 Queensland childcare centres do not meet the national quality standards.

According to the ratings released through the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority, 368 Queensland child care and kindergartens do not meet the national quality standards.

 

 

Albanese to push 90 per cent childcare subsidy if elected PM: Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has unveiled Labor’s massive childcare reform with the aim for a government he leads to make “quality affordable childcare, universal”.

 

Those centres are all categorised as "working towards the national quality standards".

As on October, no Queensland centres fall into the lowest category - "Significant Improvement Required".

Despite the hundreds of centres that do not meet the national standards, some have not been inspected for years.
