PublishingPageContent

The Queensland Early Childhood Education and Care Services 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 and state and non-state schools that provide kindergarten programs in rural/remote and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

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.

It is important for all early childhood education and care services to complete the census and ensure the information provided is accurate and up-to-date. Census data helps to inform current future government initiatives, and is useful for communities and services in determining the characteristics of early childhood education and care provision in Queensland.

The department publishes summary reports and overview snapshots of previous years'​ data collections (2008-2013) in the ECEC Services Census Fact Sheets.

This year's census begins on Monday 30 July 2018.
