ACECQA New Application Forms

CLICK ON THIS LINK: Here you will find forms that may be required under the new arrangements in place from 2012. Regulatory authorities in each jurisdiction are responsible for assessing most applications and notifications. Each form contains the contact details for the authority in your state or territory.

There are three broad areas that application forms to regulatory authorities fall under:

  • Provider approval – these forms should be used by those who own or operate services and want to apply to become an approved provider or amend existing provider status
  • Service approval – these forms should be used by approved providers who want to apply to operate a service or centre. Nominated supervisor forms, waiver forms and other forms related to the running of a service can also be found here
  • Supervisor certificate approval – these forms should be used by those who want to apply to become a certified supervisor or amend their certified supervisor status.
  • Provider Information Sheet - Services can use this form to create a provider information sheet for parents.
