Published enforcement and decision actions

The enforcement actions list provides details of providers and supervisors who have been convicted for offences and had that conviction recorded.

As the regulatory body responsible for the early childhood education and care sector, the department works closely with approved providers and services to ensure they are aware of the requirements of the legislation so as to deliver  safe, high quality and well-regulated education and care services for children.

An approved provider of an education and care service is the person or organisation who is approved to operate the service. The approved provider is ultimately responsible for ensuring that the education and care service complies with legal requirements. A nominated supervisor within an individual service also has some obligations under the law.

The department uses a risk based approach to regulation and conducts monitoring activities as part of that approach. If the department detects a breach of the legislation, it will formally notify the approved provider and will take any necessary and appropriate action to ensure the issues are rectified.

The department is committed to keeping parents, the community and the education and care sector informed about compliance action taken against serious offences through the publication of prosecutions under the National Law.

Visit the Regulatory framework page for information on the laws that apply to your service.

The document Compliance Policy - Early Childhood Education and Care (PDF 719.37KB) sets out the guiding principles for compliance and enforcement and describes the regulatory tools used by the directorate to achieve effective regulatory outcomes.
