As of the 01 January 2016 new ratio requirements have been put in place across Australia (except TAS & WA).
These new ratio changes are for the better. Giving more opportunities for qualified students to gain employment opportunities and for services to bridge the gap and create better working conditions for their employees. It takes a huge load off our shoulders knowing that finally these ratios will give us time to engage and focus our attention to each individual child within our care, providing families with the high quality care that is expected!
