Increasing the number of children you are licensed for to meet demand

If you are looking to increase your numbers prior to the 2018 school year, then you will need to complete the following:

  • Amendment of service approval SA03

You will find this on the ACECQA website under Applications and Notifications. Go to service approval forms and complete the SA03 online using the NQAITS.

Before you apply, it is important to make sure that you have enough indoor and outdoor space and that you attach all of the required information outlined on SA03. (If you are a transitional service –operating before Jan 1st 2012 – please state this to ECECD – as the service does not have to comply with the 3.25 sq. metres of indoor space. The service will have to justify how the increased numbers of children will not compromise)

It can take up to 60 days for your application to be assessed. You must not take bookings for over your current service approval number until your application has been approved.
