The Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) has highlighted that the next round of review consultations in relation to the outcomes of the 2019 National Quality Framework (NQF) Review Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (CRIS) has begun.

 

The 2019 NQF Review, which is being run by the Early Childhood Policy Group on behalf of the State and Territory Education Ministers, aims to ensure that the NQF is the best option for the early childhood education and care (ECEC) sector, that it remains current, and that it continues to lift quality of practice. 

 

Families, educators, ECEC providers and the broader community are all invited to have their say on the future of regulation of quality education and care services in Australia. 

 

During March and April 2021, interested parties are invited to visit the NQF Review website to complete an online survey, make a written submission, or to register to attend an information session to learn about CRIS. 

 

The feedback provided during these events will support Governments, both state and federal, to consider the risk, benefits and costs of changing the NQF. Following the consultation process, governments will work to develop final recommendations in a Decision Regulations Impact Statement (DRIS) for Ministers’ consideration and endorsement. 

 

All feedback, ACECQA said, will be carefully considered, and endorsed options will be implemented through changes to the national laws and regulations.
