Notes

The numbers of childcare centre staff are estimates based on the total number of staff working directly with children and any additional staff responsible for the management of the registered service. Staff working in public and private playgroups and private family centres or where the main service type of the centre was unknown are excluded.

Percentages are rounded to the nearest whole percent to express the uncertainty inherent in these figures. For this reason, totals may not exactly equal the sum of their parts.

Qualifications include those at an equivalent level - see background notes for details.
