The momentum is on our side – and together we can make early learning and childcare high quality, universally accessible and affordable in Australia.
The Federal Government has made some huge steps in the right direction; it recently introduced the affordable childcare legislation and extended subsidised early learning and childcare for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. But we know this these things alone will not address the crisis facing our early childhood education sector.
With the October Federal Budget just around the corner, Treasurer Jim Chalmers is in the process of determining funding allocation for different parts of the economy.
That’s why he needs to hear from us now – so that he knows that Australians want him to take action on early childhood education reform to ensure our children get the best start in life.
Will you send Treasurer Chalmers an email now, and ask him to support reforms that will help ease the pressure of childcare costs on families and make early learning more affordable?
It will only take a minute to support our call to the Treasurer to make early childhood education reforms a priority this Federal Budget to ensure our children get the best start in life.
