12th Annual Child Care & Workforce Participation Survey

The annual Child Care and Workforce Participation Survey offers parents and carers an opportunity to share their opinions on the Australian child care system.

Every year we survey families about the Australian early education and care system to learn more about what is working and what is not. We tailor our questions to reflect current changes and challenges in the early childhood sector and the results offer valuable insights into the health of our system from the people who rely on it.

This year we have included questions about grandparent carers, vaccinations in care settings, outside school hours care and complexity issues.

In order to maximise the number of responses and the quality of our results, we are asking our network of early childhood education and care providers to circulate this link to the 2017 survey via newsletters and social media profiles to families that attend your service.

The survey takes a short 7 minutes and for every completed survey we will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Meet the new CEO of ACECQA: Gabrielle Sinclair
This week meet the new Chief Executive Officer of ACECQA, Gabrielle Sinclair, and learn about her goals for ACECQA and the early childhood sector more broadly.

Can you tell us a bit about your background and previous experience in the early childhood sector?

Before my appointment to ACECQA, I was the inaugural Deputy Director-General of Early Childhood and Community Engagement in the Queensland Department of Education and Training. In this role I was responsible for funding approved kindergarten programs, integrated early years services and initiatives supporting children and families, together with regulating services and working in partnership with families, communities, services, educator associations and peak bodies to address barriers to children's participation in quality education and care programs. I started my career as a Year One teacher in Queensland, which was the ideal foundation in many ways.

OAC Curious Kids initiative values diversity
In an effort to engage children in the value of diversity, promote empathy and teach children that people with disabilities have unique skills and qualities, which we can learn from and appreciate, Only About Children (OAC) have developed the ‘Curious Kids’ employment program.

The program provides employment pathways for people with disabilities who wish to work in the early childhood education and care sector.

The Curious Kids initiative, developed and implemented in collaboration with disabilities services and support provider Northcott, came about after a representative from Northcott visited two OAC services to give children a lesson in sign language.
