Background Texture

Understanding the Nuances of the Childcare Industry

We work with education professionals and childcare operators to guide you through the complex compliance requirements laid down by the Child Care Act 2002 (‘the Act’) and the codes of practice of the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (‘ACECQA’). Our lawyers offer a diversity of services that are offered to owners of childcare sites. We provide corporate governance guidance to our clients in the childcare industry as well as general strategic advisory.

In addition to our transactional capacity, our commercial lawyers also excel in the areas of property and commercial law that overlap with the childcare industry on a day-to-day basis. We have been involved in numerous childcare centre transactions and understand the legislative requirements as they relate to leases, trademarks and copyright disputes. We give childcare centres advice on their responsibilities to report serious incidents and complaints and how to achieve compliance on nuanced issues specific to your industry.

We understand that of particular concern to your industry are factors such as ensuring timeframes are met and that value for money is achieved. Our experience in this area has allowed us to develop a system of precedents which we can rely upon to quickly sort through otherwise complex issues relating to childcare law.

Extensive Acquisition-Based Experience

Our Gold Coast commercial lawyers have significant experience not only in the field of roll up aggregations and acquisitions in general, but also specifically conducting them within the childcare industry.

When A.B.C. Development Learning Centres Pty Limited (‘ABC’) was placed into administration, our commercial lawyers found themselves engaged by a syndicate to make an offer to purchase several childcare centres from the administrator. By the time the dust had settled, Ramsden Lawyers had provided legal guidance and advice on the exchange of forty centres acquired from the administrators in spite of significant hurdles.

 

Gold Coast Litigation Specialists in the Childcare Industry

Our interactions with clients in the childcare industry have led us to develop expertise in litigation in this industry. We have been successful in assisting a number of clients who have found themselves involved in disputes specific to the childcare industry including non-compliance under the Act, lease disputes, restraint of trade disputes, trademark and copyright infringement complaints.

If we are forced to engage in litigation, we are sure to maintain a mutual respect, communication and commitment to our clients that ensures they stay in the loop and are free to provide frequent and comprehensive input to compliment the guidance we provide. This process also ensures that we operate as efficiently as possible by not performing any unnecessary work that is not in line with our client’s expectations and that we prevent fees from spiraling out of control.
