About Us

Who are we?

Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland (ACA Qld) is a not-for-profit organisation committed to ensuring that every Queensland child has the best start in life. As Queensland's peak body for the sector, our membership represents close to 900 early learning (childcare) services, employing an estimated 16,500 early childhood educators and teachers who educate and care for around 190,000 children of 250,000 parents.


We advocate for the interests of children and families. We represent Approved Providers and operators in ensuring that families across Queensland have access to quality, affordable and accessible early childhood education and care.

The association has existed in various forms for more than 30 years and is run by a Management Committee. The Management Committee consists of owners, operators and managers of early learning services who have extensive knowledge and experience in the fields of early childhood, education and training, and management.

We work with members, state and federal governments, regulatory authorities and other stakeholders to ensure that the sector adopts a coordinated approach that delivers the best outcomes for children, families and service providers.

We believe in quality early childhood practices and we are committed to the continuous improvement of the early childhood education and care sector.
