The Productivity Commission has called for submissions for its inquiry into Australia’s early childhood education and care (ECEC) system.
Initial submissions are due by 19 May 2023 and can be made through the Productivity Commission website. The Commission will also seek submissions after it releases its draft report in late November 2023.
You can also make a brief comment at any time.
The inquiry will make recommendations to support affordable, accessible, equitable and high-quality ECEC that reduces barriers to workforce participation and supports children’s learning and development.
The inquiry began on 1 March 2023. The Commission will provide its final report to the Australian Government by 30 June 2024.
