Guide for Use
This item should be used to report the operating or trading name of the early childhood education and care service which delivers a preschool program to children. Generally, the complete establishment, agency or organisation name should be used to avoid any ambiguity in identification.

Counting rules:
  • This item should be used to report the operating or trading name of the early childhood education and care service which delivers a preschool program.
  • The registered business name should not be used if it is different from the name of the early childhood education and care service that it manages or owns.
  • The name of the institution may or may not include a Pty Ltd business name.
  • A campus name or satellite school name (e.g. where the service provider organisation operates preschool programs at multiple geographical locations using the same service provider name) may also be used. For example, St Joseph's Kindergarten may operate two separate preschool programs at centres located in different geographical areas so each centre should be listed with a distinguishable name, such as 'St Joseph's Kindergarten - Brighton' and 'St Joseph's Kindergarten - Gawler'.
