As part of the free NSW Outside School Hours Care Quality Developmental Program, Early Childhood Australia is offering free online learning modules for OSHC Educators.

The Queensland Kindgerten Learning Guidelines (QKLG) has been revised for implementation in 2019. Kindergarten teachers in approved and funded services will now implement the updated QKLG.

From 1 January 2020, providers of long day care services and preschools/kindergartens will need to have a second early childhood teacher or, alternatively, a ‘suitably qualified person’ in attendance when 60 or more children preschool age or under are being educated and cared for.

Children have been able to leave 3 different services in Western Australia, without being noticed, causing each service to be fined thousands of dollars by the State Administrative Tribunal.

This year for 2019, the Australian Department of Home Affairs has extended Harmony Day to Harmony Week from 17th March to 23rd March 2019.
