The Quality Rating Scale was developed to help preschools work towards the outcomes of preschool education. The scale enables the evaluation of preschool education programmes catering to 4 to 6 year-old children in kindergartens and child care centres. The scale is a key part of the 2nd and 3rd tiers of SPARK and is based on the Quality Rating Model. The model comprises 7 criteria: Leadership, Planning and Administration, Staff Management, Resources, Curriculum, Pedagogy and Health, Hygiene and Safety.
