What is the Child Day-Care Centres Industry?

Companies in this industry provide childcare, mostly to children under the age of 12. This can come in the form of full-day care, occasional care, after-school care or holiday care. Childcare is increasingly supplementing education and holiday care as parents work longer hours. The industry does not cover early-years education or welfare-based social care for children.
