Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 10 Hansard (22 September) . . Page.. 4276..
Bill (ACT) 2011. The children's policy and regulation unit will continue to licence and regulate their services under the Children and Young People Act 2008.
The Education and Care Services National Law Bill 2011 will be reviewed in 2014. These services, which are currently excluded from the Education and Care Services Law (ACT) Bill 2011, will be considered for inclusion during this review period.
The ACT education and care sector is well prepared and committed to adopting the Education and Care Services National Law (ACT) Bill 2011. The ACT's education and care sector have been advocating for years and, indeed, welcome the reforms under the national quality agenda.
The amendments to the Children and Young People Act 2008 will allow the sector to move forward to progress the commitment to quality education and care for our children.
Debate (on motion by Mrs Dunne) adjourned to the next sitting.
