PublishingPageContent

The Queensland Early Childhood Education and Care Services (ECEC) Census is an annual data collection from the early childhood education and care sector.

All early childhood education and care services are asked to complete the Census, including long day care, kindergarten, family day care, outside school hours care (OSHC) and state and non-state schools that provide kindergarten programs.

Collected information is used for planning and program development, monitoring outcomes of early childhood initiatives, such as universal access to kindergarten and the implementation of the National Quality Framework.

In 2019, over 3,000 services responded, with an amazing response rate exceeding 99%. Following quality assurance processes, the Department of Education will use collected data to inform policy and program development, monitor trends and report on service delivery.
