The NQF urges all Australian Education and Care Services to continuously strive to improve their practices to improve the learning outcomes of children.

The guiding principles of the NQF include:
National Law and Regulations
The Education and Care Services National Law and Regulations stipulate the operational and legal responsibilities Kid’n Around must adhere to provide a high-quality care and education service.
National Quality Standards
The National Quality Standards are part of the Education and Care Services National Regulations. These seven quality areas set a national benchmark for quality education and care services. The standards have powerful statements instructing a child care centre to meet or exceed the National Standard. All education and care services within Australia implement the National Quality Standards as a guide to help them meet the National Quality Standards.
