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.
In essence, the QIP is a tool which facilitates the service to engage in continual improvement, and assists the service to document the strengths and to recognise areas for improvement.
At Pelican Pre-School and Long Day Care @ Shellharbour, we take the QIP seriously and make conscious efforts to update, critically reflect and work towards achieving intended goals. Families have ease of access to the QIP, and are welcome to provide feedback to add value to the improvement process.
