Little Beacons Learning Centre has once again achieved the highest government rating possible – assessed as ‘exceeding’ in all seven quality areas of the National Quality Standard.

The centre is of just a handful in Victoria to have achieved such a high standard and can now apply again to continue its overall rating of ‘excellent’.

The outstanding achievement was the culmination of months of work for Little Beacons staff and a rigorous assessment process by the Department of Education and Training.

In its summary comments, the Department said the centre demonstrated a strong commitment to continuous improvement across all seven quality areas.

“Critical reflection was a continuous process and included reflection on each individual child and their interactions with families, educators, peers, specialists and the indoor outdoor environments,” the report stated. “Little Beacons also demonstrated meaningful engagement with their families, Beaconhills College, local and global communities.”

A delighted Head of Little Beacons, Vicki Reid, said the outcome was a “huge accolade” for the staff for their hard work and commitment to quality practice.

She also thanked the combined efforts of the College’s larger team to help Little Beacons continue to deliver high quality educational programs.

“We look forward to celebrating this achievement with the teams, the families and especially with the children,” she said.
