Childcare & Childrens Health

  • The Childcare & Children's Health publication has been discontinued, following the disbanding of the National Childcare Accreditation Council at the end of 2011.

    Childcare & Children's Health was launched in 1997, and over the years has been supported by the National Childcare Accreditation Council, the Australian Government Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs and with an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson. An editorial panel also oversaw the publication's content.

    The Centre for Community Child Health would like to thank the publication's supporters and readers, and acknowledge the contributions of the editorial panel.

    Archived editions are available. Read and download past editions and fact sheets.

    The Centre for Community Child Health is planning a new online publication targeted at the early childhood educators (working with children age 0 - 8 years). More details will be available in mid-2012.
