Contents >> Collection Scope and Coverage >> Preschool Provider Frame


In 2011, the ABS began the development of a Preschool Provider Frame to deliver a more comprehensive national picture of the number of known service providers delivering preschool programs in Australia.

The two primary purposes for the Preschool Provider Frame were:

  • to better determine the coverage of the National ECEC Collection
  • to assist with the supplementation of jurisdictional data with data from the Child Care Management System for 2011, at both the service provider and child levels.

The project initially focused on improving and confirming the list of LDCs providing preschool programs that could be sourced from the CCMS, to ensure that data were of a sufficient quality to include in the National ECEC Collection.

A summary of the results of the 2011 Preschool Provider Frame is included as an appendix to the second release of the publication Experimental Estimates of Preschool Education, Australia, 2011 (cat. no. 4240.0), released April 2012.
