What are they? Why are they important?

The Excellent rating is the highest rating an education and care service can achieve under the National Quality Framework. 

The awarding of the Excellent rating by ACECQA indicates that a service is embracing continuous quality improvement and practice, and are evolving over time to improve outcomes for children and families at the highest level. It also recognises providers who are champions of quality improvement, innovative leaders beyond the service, and are raising the bar on quality education and care for Australian children. A listing Shine Bright services awarded the Exceeding rating is available below:

All remaining Shine Bright Services are either Meeting the quality standards or Awaiting Assessment.

The Excellent rating is awarded for up to 3 years if the service continues to meet the requirements. After this time eligible services have the option to re-apply.
