REVEALED: North Burnett childcare centres not up to scratch

THE latest review of childcare providers has revealed how North Burnett centres stack up compared to the rest of the nation, and it's mostly good news.

Data released by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority ranked every child care centre in the state based on their performance to the national quality standards.

The centres are assessed on seven criteria - education, health and safety, physical environment, staffing, relationships with children, partnerships with families and communities and governance and leadership.

The schools are then categorised on whether they're working towards national quality standards (NQS), meeting NQS, or exceeding NQS.

Here's how North Burnett centres fared:

C&K Gayndah Community Kindergarten - GAYNDAH - Exceeding NQS

Gayndah Early Learning Centre - GAYNDAH - Working Towards NQS

Mundubbera Family Day Care Scheme - MUNDUBBERA - Meeting NQS

Mundubbera Kindergarten - MUNDUBBERA - Meeting NQS

Eidsvold Kindergarten - EIDSVOLD - Meeting NQS

Biggenden and District Kindergarten - BIGGENDEN - Meeting NQS

Mount Perry State School Kindergarten - MOUNT PERRY - Working Towards NQS

Monto Kindergarten - MONTO - Exceeding NQS
