Queensland Parliament aims to improve early childhood education with the passage of the Education and Care Services National Law (Queensland) Bill 2011. The new Act would apply to more than 2600 early childhood services in Queensland with a new National Quality Framework coming into force on 1 January 2012.

The framework will include a quality rating system for early childhood services that intends to give parents reliable information about the quality of early childhood services.
