Childcare in Australia is Growing
The first five years of life are crucial to children’s cognitive, social and emotional development. When children have inclusive, positive and productive early learning experiences, they are more likely to go on to become successful learners, with high levels of wellbeing. Early childhood education and care (ECEC) is a critical way of providing learning experiences, especially for children experiencing disadvantage or vulnerability. For Early Learning Management, good isn’t good enough. We strive to be the best at all that we do, to help clients achieve their ambitions; to make a positive difference in the Childcare Industry & to maximise the success of our people.
Growth in Australian childcare is being driven by an expanding number of services and more flexible options for parents. Average hours of attendance increased by 2.8% in the year to June 2018, while the number of providers offering care in nonstandard hours increased by 3.2%. Ensuring services are flexible enough to respond to new, innovative working arrangements will be critical for childcare providers to achieve business growth in the future.
