New Lambton OSHC recognised as a top performer nationally in recent quality assessment

27 Jun 2017 - Media ReleasesOSHC

The YMCA NSW-run OSHC has been recognised under the National Quality Framework – the set of standards designed to raise quality in education and care services – receiving a rating of ‘exceeding’ the National Quality Standards. Only 16 per cent of OSHC services nationally receive this score.

YMCA NSW Acting Head of Children’s Services, Lisa Giacomelli, praised the New Lambton OSHC team for the dedication and hard work required to achieve this great result.

“With only 16 per cent of OSHC services nationwide receiving this high score, New Lambton OSHC is one of a very small group of OSHCs recognised for their extremely high standard of care and education.

“Our wonderful staff have worked hard in a number of areas to achieve this – in the programs that they run, by developing strong relationships with children and families and by creating a professional and engaging working environment. As such I’d like to congratulate Coordinator Kylie Nadalin and all of her staff on this outstanding result and thank them for their efforts.

“YMCA NSW is proud to offer such a high level of care and education to young people in the Newcastle area through our New Lambton OSHC service.”

The National Quality Framework aims to raise quality and drive ongoing continuous improvement in education and care services. It is overseen by a national body, the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA):
