What is My Early Childhood Education?

My ECE provides parents and caregivers with straightforward information about early childhood services in their area.

Parents can also rate their service and share their experience and recommendations with other parents.

My ECE gives families a say in the quality of early childhood education and care. This is important because as the Education Review Office has noted early childhood providers can say their service is operating well but it may be operating poorly in terms of quality for children.

Services small and large, commercial and community-based, can publicly shine here above those that are performing less well, while those who are not meeting parent expectations or doing less well in other ways have opportunity to improve.
