Regulator spotlight: Important changes for services to be aware of

Education and care services should be aware of two important changes recently made to NSW and Commonwealth Government policies:

  1. The NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning has released a Minister’s Statement of Expectations. It means all education and care services can expect a visit from the regulator at least once each year. 

  1. The Commonwealth Government has changed the rules about inducements—it means iPads and other financial incentives to encourage families to enrol at a service are not permitted from January 2023. 

Read on to find out the detail about these new changes and how they could impact your service.
