The National Quality Standard (NQS) assessment and ratings process, which is carried out by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) via the State regulatory authority ECRU (Education and Care Regulatory Unit) is currently assessing all WA early childhood education and care facilities and has named the top 86 centres visited so far.

2 childcare centres at The University of Western Australia – the UWA Early Learning Centre and Unicare – have received a top rating of ‘excellent’, the highest possible rating a centre can achieve for early childhood education and care under NQS.

The ratings cover long day care, family day care, outside school hours care and some preschools and kindergartens.
