Growth in Childcare Industry

One quarter of Australian children aged under 13 are currently in formal child care, and there will be 17% more child care workers employed in this sector by 2018.

The childcare industry is likely to remain highly promising in terms of offering a diverse range of employment opportunities, and qualified early educators will continue to be valued members of Australia’s workforce. So now is an extremely good time to study early childhood education and care.
