13th Annual Child Care and Workforce Participation Survey
On 1 July, the single Child Care Subsidy will take effect, a change which will affect everyone working in the early childhood sector as well as families using early childhood services, vacation care and before and after school programs. How are you feeling about the changes? Do you know how you will be impacted?

Every year we survey people 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 sector and the results offer valuable insights into the health of our system from the people who rely on it.

In addition to the new child care subsidy, this year, our survey gives you an opportunity to tell your wider early childhood story, share your thoughts and/or have a rant if that's what you feel like.

In addition to the new Child Care Subsidy, we have also included questions on occasional and flexible care, an increasingly popular choice among parents, which a growing number of providers now offer.

Your opinion is important, and we encourage you to take a few moments to complete the survey. By sharing your experiences, you will help us paint an accurate picture of the early childhood landscape and what changes are needed moving forward.

In coming weeks, we will summarise findings from the survey and publish them here, so you can see how your experiences compare with other people in the sector and learn how families feel about Australia’s early childhood industry.

The survey takes a short 7 minutes so why not do it now? As an added incentive, for every survey completed, we will donate $1 to one of these three charities of your choosing: National Breast Cancer Foundation, Children's Hospital Foundation Australia or Red Cross Australia. You'll also go in the draw to win an iPad Mini.
