ACECQA has launched a resource for people interested in setting up a new service, or exploring the viability of doing so. This resource covers all the basics including:

  • Understanding the legislation involved in opening a new service, including local planning controls, working with children checks, health department requirements and food safety laws.
  • Understanding your service type, including the service options available and requirements under the NQF for those services.
  • The approvals process; how you should apply and who to.
  • Regulatory requirements including staffing, health and safety, indoor and outdoor space, policies and procedures and record keeping
  • The National Quality Standard and how your new service will be rated and assessed against the standard.
  • Useful contacts; the resource includes a list of useful agencies to speak to if you have questions or need assistance.
