ACA Qld urgently requires families and service providers who are happy to be featured in a case study on the following topics. This case study will be shared with the media.

  • 3-year olds - Kindergarten in the 2 years before school
    A) A family with a 3-year-old child who is currently attending Kindergarten for only one day per week, however would like their child to attend a second day but find it difficult financially.
    B) Approved Provider who can talk about one of their families in the above situation (without disclosing their details).
     
  • 4-year olds - Kindergarten in the year before school
    A) A family with 3 children (at least one of which is under 5 years old) with at least one parent working.
     
  • Child Care Subsidy
    A) A family with 3 children (at least one of which is under 5 years old) with at least one parent working (and earning over $70k). The family used to receive the Child Care Rebate (CCR) and Child Care Benefit (CCB), but as they don’t pass the activity test, they are no longer eligible for the new Child Care Subsidy and have reduced the number of days in long day care.
    B) Approved Provider who can talk about their families in the above situation (without disclosing their private details).
     
  • Supply
    A) A family with at least one child aged 3-4 years of age, who live in a regional/remote area with no early learning service nearby. The family must travel for a substantial time (eg.1 hour drive) to get to their child care/early learning services. As a result, they may only attend one day a week given the inconvenience.
    B) Approved Provider who can talk about one of their families in the above situation (without disclosing their details).
     
  • Early Learning Workforce Strategy
    A) Approved Provider who is struggling to recruit quality, qualified, reliable staff. This could be in a geographic area that simply does not have any qualified staff in residence. The service may be forced to operate whilst not complying with the NQF requirement to have an ECT, due to the fact that none live nearby.

If you would like to be involved, please contact your ACA Qld General Manager, Brent Stokes via email gm.qld@childcarealliance.org.au or via phone on 07 3808 2366 for more information.
