As all early learning service providers would now be well aware, in October last year the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) was directed by the Treasurer to conduct an inquiry into the market for the supply of childcare services.

The aim of the inquiry is to explore the factors that contribute to the cost of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services in Australia. The inquiry will examine and consider matters including costs and availability of labour, the use of land and related costs, finance and administrative costs, regulatory compliance costs, the costs of consumables and how the family fees charged since 2018 have changed following updates in childcare policy settings.

The ACCC will be looking at how operation costs and fees for families differ across the sector, particularly between not-for-profit and privately-run services, regional, remote and metropolitan locations.
