At Blue Skies we incorporate the Building Waterfalls curriculum and as of January 1st 2012 all Early Childhood Services began participating in the National Quality Framework. This complies with the National Early Childhood Reform through recognising the importance of increasing focus on the early years to ensure the wellbeing of children.
