Early Childhood Education Directorate has regulatory responsibility to raise quality and drive improvement in NSW early education and care services.
To operate an education and care service in NSW, you will need to apply for provider approval and service approval.
Our programs are designed to help services meet the goals of the National Partnership Agreements on universal access to early childhood education.
We are committed to ensuring that children in NSW can participate in quality ECE, no matter where they live or what their circumstances are.
