St James Lutheran Community Kindergarten offers compassionate, Christ centred care, seeking excellence in ser vice, care and Christian nurturing, empowering all people to reach their full potential.
At our service we aim to provide an environment that gives consideration to the “whole child” being social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, physical and language aspects of development. Each child is treated as a person important and valuable in themselves as a child of God thereby developing a positive and healthy self-concept.
St James Lutheran Community Kindergarten is locally managed by a governance committee made up of parents and community.
Services covered by the National Quality Framework have been assessed and rated against the seven Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. The assessment and rating process aims to drive continuous quality improvement for services and provide families with better information for making choices about their children’s education and care. The overall rating for a service is determined by the combination of the ratings achieved in each Quality Area.
Each state and territory Regulatory Authority undertakes the assessment and rating process. The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, ACECQA, is responsible for ensuring consistency in assessment and ratings across Australia, assessing services for the Excellent rating and creating awareness in the sector and community about the assessment and rating process.
