Early Childhood
Business Intelligence Data
For more than 15 years has been creating products and services which make it quicker and easier for families to connect with high quality early childhood education and care providers.

These services ensure child care providers have great visibility in the market place and can showcase their unique features, while filling vacancies quickly and efficiently.

A by-product of the service has been construction of a powerful database, which offers extraordinary insights on Australia's fast-moving and constantly evolving early childhood landscape.

Our database includes longitudinal information on numerous metrics including:
  • Data on unmet demand
  • Search activity by postcode
  • Current vacancies by postcode
  • Average fees by postcode
  • Waitlisting activity
  • Geographic dispersal of services
Insights gained from have been used to inform decisions around supply and demand for new services as well as provide vacancies within existing services. The data also offers up-to-date information on industry growth and trends.

Our database offers a great level of detail on the Australian early childhood sector and can be used to support better decision making.

How to talk more to babies and why you should
Children in ECECs would seemingly have more opportunity to hear language than children in home environments, simply by virtue of the fact there are more people around them for more of the time.

However, research from Macquarie University has shown this is not necessarily the case. A study reported in the Sydney Morning Herald has shown that there are big differences in how much early childhood educators talk to babies and toddlers with some saying 50 words per minute and others recording as few as 10 words per minute.
