These five working papers present the recommendations of the Australian Early Childhood Association (AECA) regarding accreditation for early childhood education programs in Australia. The papers, written in response to the Interim National Accreditation Council's (INAC) proposed accreditation model, are entitled: "A Suggested Framework for Thinking about an Australian Accreditation System and Responding to the INAC Consultation Kit"; "An Accreditation System for Early Childhood Programs Starting with Centre-Based Long Day Care"; "Submission to the Interim National Accreditation Council"; "Comments on the INAC Draft Accreditation Process"; and "A Suggested Alternative Model for an Australian Accreditation Tool." The papers propose that: (1) accreditation aim to improve quality in all Australian child care centers and provide parents with assurance of quality; (2) the accreditation system needs to balance simplicity, fairness, protection of the service and the reviewer, and openness to variety in the interpretation of good practice; (3) the structure of the accreditation system needs to represent adequately the interests of the child care industry as a whole, starting with long-day care, but be able to be expanded to include family day care; (4) this structure should consist of a council, accreditation panels, and trained reviewers; (5) accreditation assessments should be made by those with demonstrated expertise; and (6) the accreditation process should also involve self-assessment. The AECA model differs from the INAC format mainly by suggesting three types of criteria for accreditation ("required,""self-selected," and "voluntary only"). (AC)
