Long day care


Long Day Care centres aim to cater to working families with children 0-5 years of age by opening a minimum of 8 hours per day – in fact most are open for around 10 hours a day, 49 weeks of the year. Services are licensed and operated according to the Education and Care Services National Regulations 2011 that is under the Children( Education and Care Services National Law Application)Bill 2010. These Regulations determine a set of minimum standards in relation to how a service should be run. These include child numbers and staffing, safety of children, educational programs, aspects of building compliance and the confidential keeping of records for example. The Regulations request adherence to the National Quality Framework and the National Quality Standards for long day care services in all states and territories to ensure a very high standard of care for children. Further information is found on the government website www.acecqa.gov.au.
