Keep your documentation up to date for funding compliance

Keep your documentation up to date for funding compliance

There’s a lot to think about when running an ECE service, and just like many organisations, maintaining up to date records is required.

As funding compliance audits continue to be conducted, centre based and community preschools are reminded that as a condition of funding you are required to ensure records are kept up to date including the following :

Consent forms

  • Centre based and mobile preschools need to complete two types of consent forms, one for each staff member and one for each child upon enrolment. Each form consents to the use and disclosure of personal information to the department for government reporting purposes and to calculate service funding for the Annual Preschool Census.
  • Data collected in the Annual Preschool Census is submitted to the Australian Bureau of Statistics for inclusion in the publication Preschool Education, Australia
  • De-identified data may be used for research and evaluation purposes.
  • To find out more or download the consent forms, please visit the ECCMS page on our website.
