Welcome to the Department for Communities National Quality Framework web pages.
The National Quality Framework is now in place for children’s education and care services across Australia.
The National Quality Framework in WA is comprised of the:
- Education and Care Services National Law (WA) Act 2012
- Education and Care Services National Regulations 2012
- National Quality Standard
- Rating and Assessment process.
We have set out information for Families, Education and Care Services, and Educators.
Please select from the following topic links:
The Regulatory Authority in each jurisdiction has responsibility for the operations of the National Quality Framework. In Western Australia, the Education and Care Regulatory Unit is responsible for the operations of the National Quality Framework.
The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) is the national authority responsible for guiding the implementation and ongoing administration of the Framework across Australia.
