JOINT STATE! IBS SURVEY FROM MINISTER FOR COMMUNITY SERVICES AND HEALTH, MINISTER FOR SOCIAL SECURITY AND MINISTER FOR FINANCE

The ABS private child care survey was commissioned by the Ministers for Community Services and Health, Social Security and Finance last year because of the absence of data on the private sector of the child care industry.

The information provided by the survey, when examined in tandem with the results of the latest Children's Services Program census, to be published in May, will provide a more complete picture of total child care services in Australia.

The Cotnmonwealth is committed to a National Child Care Strategy, which will provide an additional 30,000 child care places over the next four years.
