Welcome, this week a Christmas message from us to you and new ACECQA logos to promote your NQS rating. Also interesting research which suggests tiredness contributes to over eating and obesity in early childhood.
Christmas Greetings from the Team at
This is our final issue for the year and after another productive and rewarding year we'd like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you for your continued support and encouragement over the past 12 months.

For us 2016 has been all about consolidation and refinement of our current suite of products and services and planning for the future.

After launching our new website last year we have had more than 3.5 million visits from Australian parents and carers looking for high quality early childhood services.

The new website has also provided the vehicle for further enhancements to service provider listings and on our Premium and Enterprise subscriptions we launched a raft of new features including the ability to link back to your social media profiles and showcase photos and videos, making it even easier for early childhood services to fill vacancies when they arise.

We also celebrated the on-going success of, Australia's only dedicated jobs board for the early childhood sector and the expansion of Care Corporate, the premier destination for Australian organisations seeking a better way of caring for employees while doing business.

From everyone here at we wish you a happy and peaceful holiday season and we look forward to working with you in 2017.

ACECQA launches new ratings logo
If you are proud of your rating under the NQS and keen to publicly display it for families to view when they visit your service then you’ll be pleased to learn about a new suit of logos which ACECQA has launched to make it easier for early childhood education and care providers to promote their rating.

The new logos are offered as an addition to the existing Excellent rating logo which was made available some time ago.
Tiredness contributing to obesity in early childhood
Pre-schoolers who don't sleep enough may be more inclined to consume more calories, a finding which has serious implications for understanding growing rates of childhood obesity.

The finding comes from a new CU Boulder study, which examined the link between napping and calorie consumption in pre-school aged children.

For the study, the pre-schoolers, all regular afternoon nappers, were deprived of roughly three hours of sleep on one day. They had no afternoon nap and were kept up for about two hours past their normal bedtime before being awakened at their regularly scheduled times the next morning.
