Industry snapshot: childcare

In March 2020, over 1.3 million children attended an approved child care centre, with 45.1% of 0-5 year old children accessing child care services. The impact child care services have on early childhood development (and therefore, Australia’s society as a whole) is huge.

It’s no secret that Australian childcare centres require more qualified workers to fill roles. Not only that – but workers who are genuinely passionate about working with children and committing to their own career development, long-term.

Childcare has been through a number of challenges in recent years, with attendance rates temporarily impacted by COVID-19 lockdowns, job losses, and uncertainty. That said, childcare workers remain critical to the recovery period, ensuring that families have support in place for their return to work. As such, the Australian government has introduced a $2.6 billion COVID-19 response package for the child care industry to ensure that facilities remain open, with funding expected to reach $10.3 billion during 2020-21. To further protect the child care industry throughout COVID-19, the government adjusted requirements for families so that they can access subsidised care rates while experiencing unemployment.

To ensure you’re in a position to take advantage of potential career opportunities in child care, start with the online certificate in childcare to show employers that your knowledge is up to date and that you’re serious about your own learning and development.
