Provider Approval - Tasmania

Description

You will require this approval if you intend to provide a family day care or centre-based service for children ranging from below school age up to the commencement of a secondary school program. You cannot apply for a service approval unless you hold this approval. This approval enables providers to apply for one or more service approvals. A service approval authorises you (an approval provider) to operate an education and care service.

This approval is a nationally recognised approval. This means that you do not need to have a separate approval in each jurisdiction in which you operate. If you hold an approval in another jurisdiction, you will merely need to notify the Agency.

Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
