Berriedale Childcare Centre exceeding national standards

Glenorchy City Council’s Berriedale childcare facility has exceeded national childcare quality standards during a review by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority.

Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said the National Quality Standards Assessment and Rating Report found the facility exceeded national standards across all seven assessed criteria.

“This is a tremendously exciting result for our Child Care Connections Berriedale facility, and demonstrates to the community not only the quality of care our staff provide, but also their professionalism and passion in the childcare sector.

“On behalf of the Glenorchy City Council, I congratulate every single one of our childcare workers for their commitment and dedication to our very young people and thank them for delivering a service that has been officially found to be well ahead of national standards in the care it provides.”

Mayor Thomas said it was critically important for parents to have confidence in their childcare provider, and the report, conducted just prior to Christmas, demonstrated the Berriedale facility was delivering high quality childcare.

“Our staff work hard to provide an educational, engaging and stimulating environment for children, making sure their individual needs are understood and met at every opportunity.

“As a council, we are pleased to have been able to invest in our childcare centres to ensure we are delivering the very best service possible and supporting parents with their childcare needs.

“Childcare options are often difficult to find in our community, and it is incredibly pleasing to know that our facility is not just helping meet that need, but exceeding national standards as it does so.

“To all our staff and centre management I would like to offer our appreciation for a job well done, noting their commitment to the task of caring for our kids is clearly on display day in, day out.”
