PSC for Qld coordinates professional support for Queensland child care services who are eligible for Child Care Benefit and Budget-Based child care services.
PSC for Qld operates on a regional decision-making and capacity building model. Workforce Consultants based in Brisbane and Townsville facilitate 14 regional Professional Support Networks (PSNs) that prioritise the professional development needs of workers in their area. Services can also offer their professional support priorities by contacting their local PSN.
For more information please also take a look at the PSCQ State Plan 2010-2011.
Membership to PSCQ is essential if you want to access some of the support and opportunities available. Please see the Membership Form linked to the right (PDF) for a full schedule of costs and benefits.
All children's services are encouraged to become PSCQ members, including Long Day Care, Outside School Hours Care, In Home Care, Family Day Care services and Inclusion Support Agencies. Individuals can also become members.
Full-year membership runs from 1 January to 31 December. There is also a half-yearly membership option available from 1 July to 31 December, for applications lodged later in the year.

* Target child care services are Australian Government Approved Child Care Services, including private and community based long day care; outside school hours care, including vacation care; family day care; occasional care; and in-home care.
Target services also include Australian Government funded non-mainstream child care services (non-Child Care Benefit) such as flexible/multifunctional services; non-mainstream outside school hours care; non-formula funded occasional care (100 per cent Australian Government funded); and mobile child care services.
JET crèches, Indigenous playgroups and solely State Government funded services are not eligible for subsidised support under the Inclusion and Professional Support Program, but can still become members of PSCQ and access our professional support options.
