Parents and Guardians Survey - Childcare Inquiry

Closed 4 Jun 2023

Opened 18 Apr 2023


The ACCC is investigating the price and availability of childcare in Australia.

We want to hear from families with childcaring responsibilities about their use of childcare. We want to hear from families who use childcare such as Centre Based Care, Outside of School Hours Care, or care from friends or baby sitters, as well as families who don't use any form of childcare.

Please ensure only one parent or guardian per family completes the survey.

This survey can be completed anonymously.

You can call the Translating and Interpreting Service (TIS) on 131 450 if you need help completing the survey. TIS provides an phone interpreting service 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
