The National Regulations require approved services to have a Quality Improvement Plan (QIP). The aim of a QIP is to
help providers self-assess their performance in delivering quality education and care and to plan future
improvements. The QIP also helps the regulatory authorities with their assessment of the service.
Approved Providers, in our case the Kapooka Early Childhood Centre Inc Management Committee, must make sure a Quality
Improvement Plan is developed for the Centre.
The approved provider should develop a QIP which reflects the unique circumstances of the service and its
community. Educators, children, families and the community should all be involved in the self-assessment.
At the end of each year, families of our children are asked, via a simple survey, to provide feedback to assist with our self-assessment and QIP. This survey aims to identify areas within our service that families are very happy with and those which need improvement.
