Abstract: More than two-thirds of Australian early childhood educators reported working many extra hours to satisfy regulatory requirements in our 2021 survey. Half did unpaid work during accreditation - the process of demonstrating compliance with all the regulations governing early childhood education. Some were paid for as little as half of the hours they worked.
