Child Care Quality Improvement Plan Checklist

To ‘meet’ the National Quality Standard is no easy task, and as the manager of a child care program you would understand the steps you need to take to fully comply.

The best way to achieve this is through utilising System 7, the go-to quality improvement plan form for child programs around Australia. The System 7 quality improvement plan (QIP) online report allows staff to complete a series of modules which then become your QIP. Staff are then encouraged to adhere to the findings of our software tool in order to reach or exceed National Quality Standard compliance.

We provide an easy-to-use and navigate online template for self-assessment, all you have to do is complete the modules and get work on fixing any shortfalls within your child care program.

What Sets Our System Apart from Other QIP Forms?

What makes the System 7 QIP software so effective in rating enhancement is its ease of use. We have broken down the different Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard to a series of clear and concise modules.

Once you begin to make progress, the completed forms add to your quality improvement plan. Whilst National Quality Standard assessors have often spoken of the inability of other programs to help institutions improve their ratings, the System 7 checklist continues to receive tremendous support from both assessors and child care staff alike.

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.
