ACU Child Care Referral Service


ACU has partnered with Care Corporate/ Care for Kids to assist staff with sourcing suitable child care using a search and reporting tool called Child Care Vacancy Alert Pro.

Child Care Vacancy Alert Pro

Child Care Vacancy Alert Pro delivers real-time information about child care vacancies in your area straight to your inbox.  

This video explains how it works.

When you subscribe to the ACU Child Care Referral Service, you will receive:

  • A detailed report of the services with current vacancies in your area including contact information.  This report provides exact vacancy matches and information about alternative care options you may not have considered.
  • Emailed alerts when a child care vacancy becomes available in your nominated area.
  • A monthly progress report that helps you keep track of vacancy alerts and consider other care alternatives if required.
