Guide for use:

CODE 1 State or territory government funded only

Record if the early childhood education and care service providing an early childhood education program is funded by the state or territory government only (i.e. does not receive any funding from the Australian Government).

CODE 2 Australian government funded only

Record if the early childhood education and care service providing an early childhood education program is funded by the Australian Government only (i.e. does not receive any funding from the state or territory government). Australian Government funding refers only to funding for Child Care Benefit (CCB)-approved services that provide an early childhood education program. These are predominantly Centre Based Day Care services that also provide an early childhood education program.

CODE 3 Both state or territory and Australian government funded

Record if the early childhood education and care service providing an early childhood education program is funded by the state or territory government and funded by the Australian Government. Australian Government funding refers only to funding for Child Care Benefit (CCB)-approved services that provide an early childhood education program. These are predominantly Centre Based Day Care services that also provide an early childhood education program.

CODE 4 Neither state or territory nor Australian government funded

Record if the early childhood education and care service providing an early childhood education program is not funded by the state or territory government or funded by the Australian Government.

Collection methods:

Government funding for this item should only be reported for those early childhood education and care services that receive:

  • state or territory government funding, or for which the state or territory government has primary responsibility for service provision
  • Australian Government funding.

Funding received by states or territories through the National Partnership Agreement on Early Childhood Education, the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education or the National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education—2015 should be included under state or territory funding.

Australian Government funding refers only to funding for Child Care Benefit (CCB)-approved services that provide an early childhood education program. These are predominantly Centre Based Day Care services that also provide an early childhood education program.

Funding of services primarily for capital works should be excluded.

Comments:

This item categorises services by funding type to provide contextual information for the Report on Government Services (RoGS).

This item will allow early childhood education data from the National Early Childhood Education and Care Collection to be disaggregated by the service funding type (e.g. if reporting the indicator ‘children enrolled in an early childhood education program’, data could be disaggregated by those enrolled in a service that is government funded, or those enrolled in a service that is privately funded only).
