Annual ECE Census Summary Report 2010

Publication Details

This report summarises the results from the July 2010 Annual Census of ECE services. It includes statistics indicating the number of services, number of children enrolled, hours of attendance, the language of communication used by teaching staff, and statistics on staffing.

It is important to note, that this release reports on enrolments. A child may enrol in more than one ECE service, and so statistics on rates of enrolment will be an over-estimate of the true rates of participation in the population.
