The final survey in the longitudinal study of implementation of the National Quality Framework is now completed and the report is available on this website.
The report highlights the leadership of the community children’s services sector in implementing the quality reforms and achieving ratings of Exceeding the standards and of Excellent service.
Services are exceeding the mandatory staff to child ratios and employing more qualified educators and teachers. They support their Educational Leaders and support increasing numbers of children and families experiencing vulnerability – all while limiting fee increases.
Watch out for publication of a paper documenting the findings of the TICCSS studies in the context of the policy and advocacy debates during the eight year period of phased implementation of the National Quality Framework.
