In March this year, Entrada Montessori Academy was recognised by the Australian Children’s Care and Quality Authority (ACECQA) as an Exceeding Rated child care service.

The campus now joins Penrith, Barangaroo, Castle Hill and North Parramatta, to become Montessori Academy’s 5th child care service to be rated Exceeding in two years.

Senior Area Manager, Kellie Chahroura, said: “Entrada Montessori Academy’s Exceeding Rating reflects the team’s dedication to implementing the highest standards of Montessori Education, and all aspects of the National Quality Framework.

“We are incredibly proud of this result, and the ongoing commitment the Entrada team demonstrates towards their students, families, and professional teaching standards, each and every day. This rating is very well deserved,” she said.

The Entrada team were highly commended on five Quality Areas, with particular emphasis on Quality Area One, Educational Program and Practice, in their Rating Outcome Report by ACECQA.

“Your service is acknowledged for its achievements in meeting the National Quality Standard and striving for quality outcomes for children.

“In particular, an educational program that responds to children’s interests and scaffolds their learning, and the effective leadership and management of the service demonstrate the commitment to quality by the approved provider, educators and staff,” stated the ACECQA Report.

Entrada Montessori Academy will be proudly displaying their Exceeding Rating in the foyer of their service. The team look forward to implementing the suggestions provided in the ACECQA Report to continue to enhance and improve the service’s education and care program.
