About Us

The Australian Childcare Alliance Victoria (ACA Victoria) is a not-for-profit, member-funded organisation supporting and advocating for privately owned Long Day Care Centres.

ACA Victoria is a founding member of the Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA), a national organisation advocating for the future of Australia’s children. Together with all State branches, we work on behalf of early learning service providers to ensure families and their children have an opportunity to access affordable, high quality early learning services throughout Australia.
