Fitness Australia has reached out to the Australian Childcare Alliance – the national peak body that represents, advocates, informs and promotes quality early learning services throughout Australia.

More recently, with all fitness facilities across Australia having a reopening date to work towards, we have received many questions around the operation of creche and childcare services within gyms.

The Australian Childcare Alliance has informed Fitness Australia that creche falls under Occasional Care services, which are regulated by the State Governments.

They advise to contact the Education Department in whichever state the gym is located. Please find links to each Education Department below:
