Childcare in the Kimberley

Kimberley Development Commission Sector Profile #1 – Childcare in the Kimberley

The Kimberley region is experiencing an acute crisis in the availability of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) and Outside School Hours Care (OSHC).

This crisis is a serious economic concern for the region as ECEC and OSHC are basic enablers of economic activity. Without it, workers can find it challenging or impossible to take on the amount of work they desire, exacerbating labour shortages in all other areas of the regional economy.

The Kimberley Development Commission (KDC) has undertaken a body of research to illustrate the sector’s situation and highlight local solutions being implemented to reduce the impact of limited ECEC and OSHC on communities.

This report is available to help promoting advocacy on the issue, support grant and funds applications and to empower constructive discussion to solve the crisis.

For more information regarding the report, receive the Webinar or if you would like to plan a presentation, please contact Anthea Whan, anthea.whan@kdc.wa.gov.au or 9148 2100.
