The National Childcare Barometer is a joint initiative between the Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA), Rose Partners Accountants and Advisers and Bankwest Business. It is intended that this survey will be conducted annually for the purpose of examining current trends around occupancy levels, staffing, financial viability and overall sentiment in the early learning sector. It is hoped that information obtained from these annual surveys will provide valuable benchmarks at both a sector and State level, to allow individual service operators to assess and compare their performance with State and National averages.
