This article answers frequently asked questions we have received from approved providers about the change to the definition of a 'person with management or control' (PMC) that applies from 1 July 2023. Learn: 

  • why the definition of a PMC under National Law has changed

Annual service fees for approved providers of early childhood education and care are now payable on or before 1 July 2023.


Invoices were issued electronically to the email listed for the approved provider in NQAITS in early June. Read the FAQs to learn more about making a payment. 


We undertake monitoring activities to encourage compliance and to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of children.

This updated factsheet explains:

  • why and how we monitor compliance
  • what to expect during a monitoring visit 
  • steps that may be taken where non-compliance is identified. 

This factsheet provides an overview of how centre-based early childhood education and care services can meet the early childhood teacher (ECT) requirements. Find out: 

  • circumstances where an ECT can attend via technology

We have provided three formal submissions to the Royal Commission:

  • proposed universal three-year-old preschool in South Australia

  • a final report about out of school hours care in South Australia.

The final report from the Royal Commission is expected in August 2023.
