Update on the ACCC child care price inquiry

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has started its inquiry into early childhood education and care prices.

A consultation schedule is now available on the ACCC website.

The schedule includes a wide range of consultation and information gathering activities.

Stakeholders include:

  • small, medium and large child care providers in metropolitan, regional and remote areas
  • parents and carers
  • educators and workforce participants
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples 
  • people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities 
  • people with children who have a disability or complex needs. 

The ACCC will provide an interim report to the Treasurer by 30 June 2023, and its final report by 31 December 2023.
