Education and Care


Education and Care Overview

Education and Care in Tasmania

On 1 January 2012, significant changes were made to the regulation of education and care/child care services.

The majority of education and care services are now regulated under the Education and Care Services National Law (Tasmania) 2011 and the Education and Care Services National Regulations. These services were previously licensed as long day care, outside school hours care and family day care (or approved registration bodies).

Remaining services are still regulated/licensed under the State Child Care Act 2001 and State Licensing Standards. Previously these services were primarily licensed as occasional care and in-home care.
