A week is measured from 12:00AM (midnight) Monday morning to 11:59PM the following Sunday. If a service operates within this period then it is counted as having operated during that week. Therefore if an agency operates for only a short time for one of the days within a week, it is counted as operating during that week.

A service provider organisation is defined as the organisational unit which delivers an early childhood education and care service at a particular location.

The provision of service relates only to the early childhood education program components, i.e. the number of service operation weeks should only be reported for the weeks in the calendar year that the service provider organisation offers an early childhood education program.
