CELA provides a unique consultancy service. What sets us apart is the diversity of skills within our team, which allow us to successfully apply the very best expertise to the specific needs of each client. 

Setting up and running an early or middle childhood education and care service is undoubtedly complex. The good news is that we’re here to help you every step of the way.

We can guide you through all aspects of the set up and implementation of a successful service. Our highly experienced consultants will show you how to meet regulations and understand compliance, quality checks and ratings. We can also work with you to prepare business plans, set-up staff recruitment and deal with committees.

Our expertise, knowledge and wide network of resources enable us to provide personalised and customised consulting solutions to suit your specific needs.
