SCECS OSHC Holy Spirit Carnes Hill has been rated as ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’ under the National Quality Framework. The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets a national benchmark for the quality of children’s education and care services across Australia. Services are assessed against the NQS by the state or territory regulatory authority and receive a rating for each of the seven quality areas of the NQS, as well as an overall rating.

“An overall rating of Exceeding NQS is given to services that go above and beyond the requirements of the NQS in at least four of the seven quality areas. Sydney Catholic Early Childhood Services (SCECS) gaining an exceeding rating, speaks to the talent and passion our staff hold and to the professional development and support our management team provides,” explained SCECS Chief Executive Officer, Mrs Franceyn O’Connor.

“We are very proud to be recognised as an exceeding service! It is a reflection of the great continuous improvement culture within SCECS, the passion our qualified and dedicated team brings each day, and the strong collaborative relationships we have formed with our children, families, school and community.” Centre Coordinator and Nominated Supervisor, Belinda Rixon said.

“This result is reassuring and showcases the commitment SCECS holds to its families and partners in offering high-quality, enriching, fun experiences in OSHC and vacation care.  Our aim is create a safe and nurturing space so that children are engaged and confident to explore their interests, build their skills and competencies and make wonderful life-long memories of their time with SCECS, with the support of qualified and passionate Educators.” said Mrs O’Connor

As an agency of the Church, SCECS serves the Parish & school communities within the Archdiocese of Sydney operating OSHC, preschool and long day care services, and are places of both education and evangelisation, contributing towards the vision of thriving Catholic communities.

SCECS OSHC Holy Spirit Carnes Hill has been operating just over 12 months, offering care for school aged children, specifically before and after hours care for children attending Holy Spirit Catholic Primary Carnes Hill and fun and exciting programs over the school holidays open to all school aged children.
