Association Overview

Who are we?

Childcare Queensland underwent a rebranding process in 2014 and merged with other state associations across Australia to form Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA). ACA is a unified national body that represents the interests of the long day care sector across Australia.

 

ACA Qld is a not for profit, member-funded organisation representing close to 900 early learning (childcare) services, with an estimated 16,500 early childhood educators, who educate and care for around 190,000 children of 250,000 parents in Queensland.

 

ACA Qld has existed in various forms for more than 30 years and is run by a management committee comprised of its members.

We aim to actively respond to critical issues that impact the quality of education and care that our members provide, as well as the viability of the long day care sector.
