Amendments to the National Regulations to support the implementation of the National Quality Framework were agreed to by all state and territory ministers and the Australian Government recently.
Ministers also discussed actions to streamline the quality rating process.
Changes to streamline assessment and rating are being rolled out immediately.
Regulation amendments around staffing arrangements, the physical environment of early childhood services and transitional provisions to deal with workforce shortages for early childhood teachers in remote and very remote areas were agreed to. Ministers asked that work continue to finalise the more complex amendments to the National Law and Regulations to reduce regulatory burden on the sector.
Further information about the regulation amendments will be provided once the details are final.
