Childcare providers, educators, communities, and families have been invited to provide feedback on proposed options for changes to the National Quality Framework for Early Childhood Education and Care Services, which have been outlined in the Consultation Regulation Impact Statement.
One critical issue that the Regulation Impact Statement will examine is the inclusion of Budget Based Funding (BBF) services in the National Quality Framework.
SNAICC provided a submission to the 2014 Review of the National Quality Framework (NQF) in July 2014, which focused on the approximately 270 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander BBF services that currently sit outside of the NQF.
Feedback provided through the Regulation Impact Statement will aid the Australian, state, and territory governments determine which options have support within the sector, as well as provide insight on any issues that might not have been considered.
Feedback can be provided until 16 January 2015.
