National Workforce Census

Don’t Forget to Participate

It’s time to register for the 2024 early childhood education and care (ECEC) National Workforce Census.

Look out for an email from the Social Research Centre. This census data will be more important than ever given the workforce shortages. This census helps to build a better picture of the make up of the sector and challenges.

The census is:

  • mandatory for all Child Care Subsidy (CCS) approved providers under Family Assistance Law

If you haven’t heard from the Social Research Centre, check your junk/spam folder. If you still can’t find the email, call 1800 639 098 or email

Further information and regular updates on the National Workforce Census are available on the Social Research Centre website.

Happy Easter!
