The federal government has saved $3 billion cracking down on dodgy childcare providers, with 380 services had now been listed on the Child Care Enforcement Register.

Education Minister Dan Tehan said in a statement on Saturday, "We are taking tough action against dodgy child care operators who are ripping off hard-working Aussie families. Providers who are rorting the child care system, ripping off families and taxpayers will be caught and may face criminal charges."

More than 380 services had now been listed on the Child Care Enforcement Register - which lists services that have been the subject of a sanction or immediate suspension - since its introduction two years ago.

The majority of providers are doing the right thing and our strong action is protecting their reputation and the good standing of the sector". Mr Tehran said.
