Starting Blocks is a online platform that provides parents with information about early childhood education and care.

Starting Blocks is a starting point to: 

  • learn about children’s developmental milestones 
  • understand what to expect from an early childhood education and care service
  • find services and learn about their quality ratings
  • get tips on starting child care or preschool, and what can be done at home to encourage your child’s learning and development. 

Starting Blocks is brought to you by the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA). ACECQA is the national body, overseeing the implementation of the National Quality Framework (NQF), which has been developed to improve the standard of education and care.
