What we do

We provide national leadership on the implementation of the NQF and collaborate with the Australian and state and territory governments to:

  • implement changes that benefit children birth to 13 years-of-age and their families
  • monitor and promote the consistent application of the Education and Care Services National Law across all states and territories
  • support the early childhood education and care sector to improve quality outcomes for children

We encourage continuous improvement and are committed to undertaking research to ensure governments, the sector and the wider community are informed by the latest developments in education and care.

How we work

ACECQA is an independent national authority, based in Sydney. It is guided by a governing Board whose members are nominated by each state and territory and the Commonwealth.
