2013 National Early Childhood Education and Care Workforce Census
Social Research Centre (Melbourne, Vic.), May, 2014
Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia: Australia, Department of Education.

The National Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Workforce Census 2013 ('The National ECEC Workforce Census') was commissioned by the Department of Education ('the department') as part of a range of Australian Government initiatives designed to improve the quality of information used in developing and measuring early childhood policy and programmes. It is the latest in a series of large-scale collections which address information gaps in administrative data available from the Child Care Management System (CCMS). Predecessors include the National ECEC Workforce Census 2010, the Australian Government Census of Child Care Services (AGCCCS) and the 2008-09 Child Care Provider Survey (CCPS). Preschool services were included for the first time in the National ECEC Workforce Census in 2010. The National ECEC Workforce Census was developed specifically to address information gaps in existing administrative data sources, with respect to the ECEC workforce, participation in and provision of preschool programmes and children with additional needs in child care. National ECEC Workforce Census data will assist policy makers to better understand the challenges of providing quality child care and early learning, assess the capacity in the workforce to meet future demand and formulate strategies to support early childhood development policies.
