The publication contains episodes and counts of children enrolled in, and attending preschool in Australia collected through the National Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) Collection.

The National ECEC Collection compiles statistics on children, workers and service providers from all establishments delivering an Early Childhood Education program.

Children enrolled in and attending preschool by various combinations of state/territory, type of preschool (government, non-government, long day care), Indigenous status and age.

The Australian Statistician has approved, in exceptional circumstances, a 9:30am AEDT lockup for this product.

It is important from a public good perspective that key Ministers are able to respond in an informed manner to requests from the media about the statistics in this product and thereby avoid any inadvertent misinterpretation.

Approval is required for representatives of Government departments wishing to attend this lockup. Requests must be submitted no later than 1 business day before the lockup is scheduled to start.
