Bankstown Public School’s SMOOSH service has met National Quality Standards (NQS) in all seven areas.

These include:

  1. Educational program and practice
  2. Children’s health and safety
  3. Physical environment
  4. Staffing arrangements
  5. Relationships with children
  6. Collaborative partnerships with families and communities

“Well done to all the team.”

The NQS sets a high benchmark for outside school hours care services.

The NQS includes seven quality areas that are important outcomes for children.

Services get a rating for each of the seven quality areas.

The Bankstown Public School service passed with flying colours.
