KU Killara Park Preschool has been rated in the top 1% of early education services in the country by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA).
The preschool’s recent ‘Excellent’ rating under the early education National Quality Standards, is a significant achievement, and recognises the exemplary program and strong relationships that exist between the preschool’s staff, children, families and the local community.
“This recognition is a team effort. We’re really lucky to be supported by families who value and support the work we do, and a team who work together to achieve great outcomes for children and families,” said KU Killara Park Director, Laure Hislop.
In awarding the ‘Excellent’ rating, ACECQA recognised KU Killara Park’s commitment to the research and application of technology as a curriculum tool, with the preschool implementing a variety of resources including Bee-Bots, iPads, two large screen TVs, and a SMART table, to create a technology rich learning environment.
“Our aim has always been to use technology to support learning. The approach we have taken is to only use technology to provide an experience that traditional methods don’t allow,” said Laure.
