Tell the Treasurer to support early learning reform in the Federal Budget

I have read and agreed to the terms of the Privacy Policy, the Collection Statement and the website Terms and Conditions.

The early learning system desperately needs reform, and this is the most important time to make our voices heard.

In just a few weeks, our Federal Government will release their 2023 Budget. This is our chance to push for major changes to our early learning system that will benefit children across the country.

Use the form on the side of this page to send an email to Treasurer Jim Chalmers asking him to include 5 key changes in the Federal Budget — it only takes a second, and it makes a huge difference.

We’re calling for:

  1. An immediate wage increase for early childhood educators to help solve the current workforce crisis
  2. The abolition of the Child Care Subsidy activity test to make childcare and early learning more accessible and affordable
  3. Funding for more First Nations-led and operated childcare centres
  4. Funding to improve childcare access for rural and remote families
  5. Introduction of 3-year-old preschool across all States and Territories

Let’s make sure the Federal Government hears our call for urgent reform of our early learning system.

Take a few minutes to send an email to the Treasurer now.
