Thank you for joining our online public hearing on 30 October 2023

On 20 October 2023, we published our Interim Report for our review of affordability, accessibility and consumer choice in the NSW early childhood education and care sector.

We invited the sector (including providers and workers), families and the community (as well as organisations/groups representing them) to participate in an online public hearing on Monday 30 October 2023.

The public hearing included a question and answer session following an introductory presentation from IPART. Stakeholders were able to provide feedback and ask questions about our draft findings on factors that drive affordability, accessibility, consumer choice and supply of early childhood services in NSW, and our draft recommendations to address barriers to these in the sector. 

We have published our presentation slides and the transcript for the hearing, which you can access below:

We will consider all feedback and comments when we make our final recommendations in December this year.
