Annual Child Care
& Workforce
Results 2014
For more than 11 years® has been helping Australian families manage the challenge of finding high quality child care where and when they need it.

Every year we run a survey to learn more about the child care situation in Australia on the national level as well as to discover the issues and concerns facing families as they set about securing care at the individual level.

The results of this survey provide valuable information on the state of the Australian child care system and offer some insight into the child care problems being faced by so many families.

This is our ninth annual survey and included 1895 Australians with children in care or considering care. The survey was conducted online between April and May 2014.
