Structural differences in the provision of early childhood education around the country, and variations in terminology, may make responding to some questions difficult. However the AEU is attempting to develop a national picture of the impact of the roll-out of the national reforms on members’ work, and provide state and territory information in a nationally consistent way. For this reason, the language used in the survey is generic and may not be the same terminology used to describe the sector in a particular state or territory (for example, preschool/kindergarten).
