High-quality childcare services have always been extremely important in Australia. As the infographic shows, more than 1.3 million Australian children and over 986K families currently attend childcare services.
Because of the increased demand for these services, the call for well-qualified and experienced professions is also there. A lot of people confuse childcare with babysitting however, in reality, childcare service is way beyond just babysitting.
Where babysitting is just taking care of a child for a few hours, childcare service provides children with extensive care, attention and helps them develop with full potential to reach their milestones.
