About the directorate

Located within the Department of Education, we are committed to driving educational and developmental outcomes for children attending education and care services, including long day care, preschool, outside school hours care, family day care and occasional care. Our aim is that all children in NSW participate in high quality education and care services, including for 600 hours a year in the two years before school. Our work is based on established evidence of the benefits of early childhood education to enhance children’s cognitive abilities and social and emotional skills.

There are two Directorates for Early Childhood Education:

- Quality Assurance and Regulatory Services Directorate

- ECE and Schools Policy Directorate

Early Childhood Education Quality Assurance and Regulatory Services Directorate

We have regulatory responsibility, through the National Quality Framework and our state-based early childhood legislation, to raise quality and drive continuous improvement and consistency in education and care services. Our Directorate regulates and supports over 5,500 services in NSW through monitoring, assessment and rating, enforcement and compliance and approval processes. We work with jurisdictional partners across Australia and the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) to ensure a consistent application of the National Quality Framework and we continuously strive to work with the education and care sector to improve how we regulate to enhance child outcomes.

ECE and Schools Policy Directorate

We manage the strategic policy framework for early years settings and K-12 education in NSW, including non-government schools. We do this by analysing, understanding and informing national policies on early childhood education, and by identifying and developing new strategies to achieve department goals, including innovative solutions to complex challenges. We directly fund early childhood education services and organisations to help meet the goals of the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education and support services to deliver high quality education and care. We carry out research and analysis on how to effect positive educational change particularly for Aboriginal children, children with disability and children in regional and remote NSW. We support needs-based funding for non-government schools, and drive Education for a Changing World programs and innovations.
