Starting Blocks

Starting Blocks provides parents with information about early childhood education and care.

Starting Blocks is a starting point to: 


learn about children's developmental milestones 

understand what to expect from an early childhood education and care service

find services and learn about their quality ratings

get tips on starting child care or preschool, and what can be done at home to encourage your child’s learning and development. 

Our aim is to provide you and your family with trusted information, all in one place – welcome to Starting Blocks. 


Starting Blocks is brought to you by the Australian Children's Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). ACECQA is the national body, overseeing the implementation of the National Quality Framework (NQF), which has been developed to improve the standard of education and care.  Clink the link below to learn more about Starting Blocks.
