First Catholic Preschool for Sydney Archdiocese Exceeds National Standards
St Therese Preschool & Long Day Care Sadleir-Miller, the first early childhood service established in 2019 by Sydney Catholic Early Childhood Services (SCECS), has been rated as ‘Exceeding National Quality Standard’ under the National Quality Framework during a recent assessment and rating process.
SCECS gained an exceeding rating in all areas, SCECS CEO Franceyn O’Connor said, which she attributes to “the talent and passion our staff hold and to the professional development and support our management team provides”.
“This rating recognises the services commitment to providing exemplary Early Childhood Education and Care that supports the individual needs of each child, their family and the local community. The staff’s pedagogical practises provide strong foundations for children, empathising the service’s strengths within inclusive teachings and practices, as well as sustainability,” Mrs O’Connor noted.
Centre Director Anitha Arul said the team are “very proud to be recognised for exceeding in all areas,” saying the results “are testament to the qualified and dedicated team that we have here at St Therese Preschool & Long Day Care”.
“We pride ourselves on providing an outstanding education and care service, as well as wrap around services that provide outreach to our families and the community,” she added.
The service caters for 40 children aged between two and six years of age, in a purpose built facility which is described as a place of both “education and evangelisation.”
St Therese Preschool & Long Day Care was the first of a number of centres planned for the Archdiocese of Sydney to be built, with another preschool currently operating in Auburn, another in Rosebery opening its doors in 2022, and others planned for Austral and Caringbah in the near future.
