The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is a not-for-profit, member-funded organisation advocating for the future of Australia's children. We work on behalf of long day care owners and operators to ensure families and their children have an opportunity to access early childhood education and care (ECEC) throughout Australia.

Advocacy and Policy

With a national membership base that represents over 70% of all privately owned Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services,
we offer a strong voice for the ECEC sector in the areas of:
• lobbying government on important issues such as the national standards for children's education and care, and the level of childcare rebate funding available to families
• information sharing between other ECEC groups and interested parties
• providing regular updates to our members about government developments that affect the ECEC sector, emerging issues facing the sector and landmark decisions in areas
   such as industrial relations law.

We promote and support the quality provision of ECEC for families by:
• evaluating and commenting on social policy and strategic directions that affect ECEC
• advocating for the rights of children and their families
• fostering the understanding and development of best practices in ECEC
• improving access to quality, inclusive ECEC services
• raising awareness of the importance of ECEC
• providing leadership and support to those in the field of ECEC
