REPORT | Several Gold Coast childcare centres not meeting expectations

Several Gold Coast childcare centres have reportedly failed to pass national quality framework standards.

News Corp said Data released by the independent authority overseeing the ratings reveals 605 childcare operators in Queensland failed to pass national quality framework standards introduced in 2012.

Locally A B Paterson College Outside School Hours Care in Arundel, Amaze Active Bonogin at Mudgeeraba, Bambini Early Childhood Development Southport, C&K Gold Coast Family Day Care in Mudgeeraba and Clearview Early Learning and Kindergarten in Nerang all named.


According to the report, Camp Australia outlets in Elanora, Carrara, Pacific Pines, Varsity Lakes, Upper Coomera and Mudgeeraba were also among the more than 30 children’s education and care centres in the Gold Coast region who are working towards National Quality Standard.

News Corp also said hundreds are yet to be rated by inspectors years after the scheme started.

Queensland is performing slightly worse than Victoria but is ahead of New South Wales, South Australia and Western Australia.

Just 15 Queensland providers achieved a rating of “excellent”.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Amaze Active at Bonogin and Mudgeeraba reportedly failed to pass national quality framework standards. Amaze Active have four centres in Mudgeeraba, and the only centre working towards NQS is Amaze Active Bonogin in Mudgeeraba. Amaze Active Mudgeeraba at Mudgeeraba State School and Amaze Active Somerset at Somerset College are both meeting NQS. Amaze Early Education Centre is exceeding NQS.
