This page includes resources for workplaces in the Early Childhood Education and Care industries on work health and safety, workers’ compensation and COVID-19.
We also have information for the broader Education and Training industry.
The Early Childhood Education and Care industries provide education and care for infants or children, including:
- preschool education
- before and/or after school care services
- child care services
- childminding services
- children’s nursery operations, and
- family day care services.
Services may be provided in a range of settings, such as child care centres, preschools and private homes. Generally, it involves facetoface interaction between carers and children.
