Department of Education


All approved Childcare and preschools follow the Regulatory authorities administer the National Quality Framework (NQF) in each state and territory, usually as part of that state or territory’s education department or agency.

  • granting approvals, including provider approval and service approvals
  • assessing and rating services against the National Quality Standard
  • working with ACECQA to promote continuous quality improvement and educating the sector and community about the NQF.

Regulatory authorities also have a range of powers and tools to facilitate continuous improvement and ensure compliance with the NQF, including the ability to issue compliance notices.

Contact your regulatory authority for enquiries about:

  • submitting application and notification forms
  • provider and service applications and approvals
  • supervisor certificates (in WA only)

  • assessment and rating
  • compliance
  • state or territory specific transition and savings provisions
