Vacation Care policies and procedures

All polices have been reviewed and updated in accordance with the Education and Care Services National Regulations and National Quality Framework.

All Vacation Care Policies are on display at each Vacation Care Centre and are always open for review and feedback. If you would like to provide feedback or contribute to the review process please contact the Vacation Care Coordinator for more information or speak to the Centre Coordinators.

National Quality Framework

The Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations introduced a new National Quality Framework (NQF) in 2012 for Out of School Hours Care (OOSH) called 'My Time Our Place'.

The framework aims to create a rich environment for play. Under the NQF, we have to meet new standards designed to give children the best possible start in life through high quality early childhood education and care.
The National Quality Framework includes:

  • A national legislative framework that consists of the Education and Care Services National Law and Education and Care Services National Regulations
  • A national quality standard
  • An assessment and rating system
  • A regulatory authority in each state and territory with primary responsibility for the approval, monitoring and quality assessment of services in their jurisdiction
