The Ultimate Before School Care Assessment and Rating Checklist

As expectations from the National Quality Standard for education and child care steadily on the increase, it is imperative that you ensure your before school care program meets compliance.

How to achieve this? By using System 7 software – Australia’s ultimate before school care assessment and rating tool. The online tool, available for childcare programs around the country, allows childcare workers to assess where they are meeting National Quality Standard compliance and the areas in which you need to fix.

As you work through the before school care assessment and rating template form you will start to find the areas in which you need to fix to meet the rating for the National Quality Standard.

It’s a simple system: complete each template module regarding different areas of before school care rating and assessment which as you work becomes an organic quality improve plan, better known as a “QIP”. You then utilise your QIP checklist to ensure your before school program is working toward meeting the standard.

As you continue to complete the assessment form, you will continue to unveil and fix the problems that are making your childcare program fall short of National Quality Standard compliance. What’s more, once you have completed the checklist you won’t only meet compliance; you will be positioned to work towards exceeding.

What our users have to say

System7 has made a significant difference to our Service and how we update and implement our Quality Improvement Plan. We have found it to be easy to use, it's saved us time and helped us confidently work through the Assessment and Rating process.

What our users have to say

Basically, we would not have achieved the ‘Exceeding’ rating at all without the assistance of System7. The Assessor told us that many Services have been operating for over 10 years and still have not been able to achieve this result. A big thank you!


Before you use System 7 for the first time we recommend that you watch the Introduction Video and read each of the ‘frequently asked questions’ below:

  • How do I sign up for the free trial?

    When you click ‘Sign Up Now’ you will be directed to a checkout page to submit your contact details, Username & Password. Then onto a payment page to add card/PayPal information.


    In the final days of the free trial you will be prompted to either continue OR cancel. If you decide to remain a member you don't need to do anything apart from continuing to use System7.


    Our preferred supplier for online transactions is eWay. They provide the option to have your payment debited from a credit card, debit card or your PayPal account.

    Once completed, you’ll be directed back to the home page. Click on the 'DASHBOARD' link next to the rocket ship at the top right of the page. This will open the program.

  • How often can we use the program?

    You can use the program as many times as required.

    System 7 has been designed so you can complete an entire self assessment of all Quality Areas and then reset for next time. Before doing this you will be prompted to generate a full report and download a PDF of your previous self assessment before clicking the reset button.

    Your Quality Improvement Plan data will NOT be deleted via the reset process as it forms an organic, ongoing process.

  • Do I need to be connected to the internet?

    Yes - System 7 has been built for convenience so you can access your latest audit from any location. We utilise the most secure cloud based servers available to ensure your information is safe and private - yet accessible.

  • How often is content reviewed and updated?

    The management of content, guidance and regulation adjustments to support a successful 'Assessment & Rating' preparation will be vigorously maintained.

    The program is owned and managed by the Childcare Centre Desktop team. The efficiency and effectiveness of System 7 is of paramount importance to us.

  • Can I use it on my Smartphone or iPad?

    Yes - the design is based around the iPad format but will automatically adjust to match your preferred system.

How is Our Program Different?

National Quality Standard compliance assessors hold assessment to a high level, and often spoke of the inability for programs to help meet compliance expectations. However, our easy-to-use online program makes finding and fixing compliance gaps simple.

The System7 before and after school care quality improvement plan software continues to receive rave reviews from childcare workers who believe the program is an ideal tool to meeting compliance. As higher standards are something we all want to achieve for education and childcare services, it has never been a better time to do so with System 7.
