We are an Exceeding Centre!


Ada Mary are very proud to be and to have always been, an exceeding accredited service with ACECQA.  The accreditation process has had some change over the years, however our service has maintained our Exceeding rating since inception in 1998.

Exceeding practice is:​Embedded in service operations (Theme 1).

Informed by critical reflection (Theme 2).

Shaped by meaningful engagement with families and/or the community (Theme 3).

To be rated Exceeding NQS overall, all Quality Areas must be at least Meeting NQS, and four or more Quality Areas must be Exceeding NQS, with at least two of these being Quality Areas 1, 5, 6 or 7.

The higher level of quality is assessed against each of the 15 NQS Standards using the three Exceeding themes.

Our current accreditation is Exceeding in all seven quality areas. which again surpasses the requirement to meet exceeding level.
