Serious enforcement actions

WebPartZone1_1
PublishingPageContent

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Queensland early childhood education and care services must meet the requirements of the National Quality Framework or the Education and Care Services Act 2013.

The department, as the Queensland Early Childhood regulatory authority, may publish information about certain serious enforcement actions taken against early childhood providers and educators.

Publication of information on serious enforcement actions provides assurance and transparency regarding the regulation of Queensland’s early childhood education and care sector. However, information that the department chooses to publish is not a comprehensive list of all serious enforce​ment action taken.

Publication enables parents, the community and the early childhood sector to have access to information about individuals and organisations that have presented a risk to children’s safety, health and wellbeing when providing education and care. Families should also request to see a service’s record of compliance when choosing an early childhood education and care service for their child.
