Parents can now look up shonky childcare centres thanks to a new government website naming and shaming offenders.
CHILDCARE centres caught out rorting taxpayer subsidies and committing other rule breaches have been listed on a public national shame register.
Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham said dodgy operators now had nowhere to hide.
“This register should serve as a warning to providers that if you’re non-compliant and do the wrong thing you will be hung out to dry,” Senator Birmingham said.
In 2016-17, the Education Department issued 141 sanctions and immediate cancellations of taxpayer subsidies.
