2018 Network Meetings

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) NSW reintroduced Network Meetings in early 2017 across Greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong where service provider members and non-members and their fellow owners and business decision-making directors can come together and discuss sector issues that impact on their childcare services, building collegial local communities of like-minded service providers.

Depending on demand, ACA NSW can conduct more Network Meetings in other cities, suburbs and towns or on-line, subject to the Executive Committee’s approval.

What would be discussed at Network Meetings:
The main issues that will be discussed is the introduction of the Federal Government's new Child Care Subsidies (beginning 2 July 2018). In particular:

     1. Post Child Care Subsidy (CSS):
         (a) How to set fees to under CCS
         (b) Absences during the CCS transition period
         (c) 36 subsidised preschool hours
         (d) Understanding all available exemptions
         (e) Update on software providers

Other topics that will also be covered Network meetings typically include:

     2. Changes to the Payroll tax.
     3. NSW's future workforce strategy for educators/teachers
     4. Unions' application to FWC to increase wages by 59%.

There may also be limited presentations by ACA NSW’s sponsors.

  • Lyn Connolly, President, Australian Childcare Alliance NSW
