KOONDROOK Preschool has achieved an overall rating of Exceeding National Quality Standard in a recent audit of its program delivery.
Council’s community wellbeing director Mandy Hutchinson said it was an exceptional result for the preschool.
‘‘There are seven National Standards and Koondrook Preschool achieved an exceeding rating for five out of the seven areas,’’ she said.
‘‘An overall rating of Exceeding National Quality Standards is given to services that go above and beyond the requirements of the NQS in at least four of the seven quality areas.’’
Koondrook Preschool provides four-year-children access to 15 hours of kindergarten over three days a week.
‘‘The program is delivered by early childhood teacher Danielle Parsons and educational assistant Chloe Hull,’’ Ms Hutchinson said.
‘‘We are excited to announce Koondrook Preschool will be commencing a bush kindergarten program in the near future that will enable children to further investigate the natural environment that surrounds this ideally located preschool.
‘‘Congratulations to the educators and parents of the Koondrook Preschool for achieving this outstanding result.’’
