The first step in running your service is understanding it.

Our Early Years Research team is helping Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) services achieve that goal, making it easier to gain insights and implement strategies off the back of our sector-wide studies spanning thousands of services. Since its introduction in 2018, the amount of data collected — and the insight gained — has been groundbreaking. is Australia’s first dedicated Early Years Research portal, with a mission to help services succeed through data and insights.

This is an initiative by QikKids and Xplor, drawing insights from over 7,000 centres.
