Little Beacons Learning Centre at Berwick has achieved the highest government rating possible – assessed as ‘exceeding’ in all seven quality areas of the National Quality Standard. Little Beacons Pakenham already has the same rating.
It’s an outstanding result for the new centre which opened at Beaconhills’ Berwick Campus at the start of 2020.
In its report, Australian Children’s Education & Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) said that high quality, embedded practice was evident throughout the service, creating a strong sense of continuity, predictability and security for each child.
The report noted Little Beacons’ commitment to social justice and equity, and its drive to provide environmental education to children, families and the community.
“The educators demonstrated a deep understanding of early childhood education and care and had a broad skill set that maximised learning and development opportunities for all children,” the report said.
