Local government and early learning.

Share this content

Local government plays an important role in early learning and childcare. Many councils directly provide early learning services or support local children’s services in a variety of ways.

If you’re involved in your local council and want to do more to help the campaign, fill in this form and one of our team will be in touch.

We all know that early learning reform has the power to supercharge Australia’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It will drive workforce participation, particularly for women, boost productivity and GDP, boost our nation’s education performance, and give children the best possible start in life.

Australian families and women understand this. Yet our early learning system is outdated and expensive. Despite it being an essential service, many either cannot access high quality early learning services or simply cannot afford them.

This is why Thrive by Five is calling on the Federal Government to create a high quality, universally accessible and affordable early learning and childcare system in Australia.

We need to keep the pressure on the Federal Government. That’s why we’re asking local councils across Australia to add their official voice to the campaign.

Council’s have already begun to pass the motion in support of the campaign.

Can you pass this motion or get your local government involved in Thrive by Five?
