The KindiCare Excellence Awards

Recognising the top performing early childhood education and care centres nationally.

The KindiCare Excellence Awards were established to recognise and celebrate the outstanding early childhood education and care services delivered around Australia that support the early learning, growth and development of our children. Early childhood education and care is hugely important in supporting a better future for our children and all Australians. Goodstart Early Learning Tuggerah took out the top award nationally from all the state and territory finalists, achieving a perfect 10.0 KindiCare Rating, the first time any of the 16,500 early childhood education and care services on the KindiCare App have achieved a perfect score. All winners in the inaugural KindiCare Excellence Awards have one thing in common; they are delivering outstanding early childhood education and care services, thanks to the hard work of childcare providers, their educators and staff in the communities that they serve. In addition to the overall national and state and territory winners, 1,673 early childhood education and care services achieved an Excellent KindiCare of 9.0 or higher. In recognition of achieving an Excellent KindiCare Rating in the 2021 awards, all centres and services that achieved this rating have been sent a certificate to mark their contribution to early learning as well as a badge to display at their centre to highlight to families that the centre is one of less than 10% nationally who achieved this rating.

How the KindiCare Excellence Award winners and finalists are determined

Excellence in early childhood education and care is so important to our children’s development and growth, and those centres that truly excel in the early learning services they provide should be celebrated! Rather than being judged by early childhood education and care industry peers, the KindiCare Excellence Awards are determined by KindiCare primarily using the KindiCare Rating. Over 300,000 data points from the KindiCare App are used by the KindiCare Rating algorithm to determine a rating for each early childhood education and care service registered in Australia. These data points included almost 125,000 reviews from families, over 25,000 current and historical ACECQA ratings under the National Quality Framework, including 15,400 current ACECQA ratings, as well as other information and data held by KindiCare regarding early learning services. In addition to the national winner, and eight state and territory winners, there were a total of 1,673 early childhood education and care centres recognised in this year’s awards as having achieved an Excellent KindiCare Rating of 9.0 or higher. Each and every one of these centres received a formal acknowledgement from KindiCare of their rating which includes a decal to display at their centre to let families know it’s a top-rated centre.

What is the KindiCare Rating

The KindiCare Rating is the only rating in the early childhood education and care sector to combine data about a centre, feedback and reviews from families and government audits under the National Quality Framework together in one simple and easy to understand assessment of a childcare centre’s performance. The KindiCare Rating makes it easy for families, childcare providers, government and other industry stakeholders and participants to understand how individual early childhood education and care services compare nationally as well as in their local markets, suburbs and regions.
