About Us

Formerly known as Childcare Queensland, Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland (ACA Qld) is a not for profit, member-funded organisation representing over 850 early learning (childcare) services, employing approximately 14,000 early childhood educators and teachers, who educate and care for around 185,000 children of over 250,000 parents in Queensland.


We advocate for the interests of children and families. We work on behalf of Approved Providers and operators to ensure that families across Queensland have access to quality, affordable and accessible long day 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 long day cares services and 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 industry adopts a coordinated approach that delivers the best outcomes for children, families and long day care providers.

We are committed to providing our members with a strong, positive and proactive voice.


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