Advice to ECDA on POP scheme

The Early Childhood Development Agency (“ECDA”) launched the Partner Operator (“POP”) scheme in 2016 to support mid-sized and smaller child care operators to keep fees affordable, build capabilities to raise quality, and improve career prospect for Early Childhood professionals. CCS recognised the benefits of the POP scheme. Working closely with ECDA, CCS developed a guide on the key pointers to look out for regarding information sharing for Partner Operators. CCS also conducted outreach sessions to the Partner Operators to inform and educate them on the exclusions and prohibitions of the Act as a consortium.
