Workshop for New Approved Providers

Australian Childcare Alliance Queensland (ACA Qld) is a not for profit, member-funded organisation representing over 850 early childhood education and care services, employing approximately 13,500 educators, who educate and care for around 180,000 children of over 245,000 parents in Queensland.

We advocate for the interests of children and families and work on behalf of Approved Providers and operators to ensure that families across Queensland have access to quality, affordable and accessible early learning.

ACA Qld are delivering a workshop to support new and existing Approved Providers of early learning services in:
