In June 2023, our Maribyrnong Out of School Hours Care were thrilled to be officially recognised as Exceeding the National Quality Standard.

This accomplishment reflects their unwavering commitment to excellence in five crucial areas: children’s health and safety, the physical environment, staffing arrangements, collaborative partnerships with families and the community, and governance and leadership.

The assessors were impressed by the professionalism exhibited by our team, their engagement with children and families, and their active involvement in children’s learning and shared decision-making. They also commended Reanna, Maribyrnong Senior Program Coordinator, for nurturing a culture of warmth, inclusivity, and professionalism.

“This exceeding rating acknowledges the exceptional work our team does,” said Reanna proudly.   Our close relationships with the school and families were highlighted in this assessment. This is a goal I have personally been working towards in my career and I’m extremely proud of our achievement.”

Maribyrnong Principal Andrew Buesnel echoed this sentiment. “An exceeding rating for our wonderful team from Communities at Work comes as no surprise to us. Our alignment in philosophies means that children’s individual well-being and learning needs are met before, during and after school.”
