Counting kids: developing a new national collection for childcare and preschool services

Children Schools Child care Early childhood education Evidence-based policy Australia

A number of organisations currently collect information on children's services. While there is some duplication of information across the collections, there are also notable gaps, and no single collection or combination of collections, is able to provide an accurate measure of the number and proportion of children who attend child care and/or preschool. This bulletin identifies the requirements needed for developing a new national collection for child care and preschool services.
