Goodstart supporters, tell our leaders in Canberra why changing the early learning system is important to you.

As a supporter of Goodstart, we know that this is an issue you deeply care about.

Our CEO Jay Weatherill is going to Parliament – and we want your stories to go too. 

Jay is heading to Parliament to meet with MPs and senators from all sides of politics to urge them to take the early learning system seriously.

But for our leaders to really listen, they need to hear real stories, from real people like you, about your experiences and challenges with the early learning and care system – and why it needs to change. Will you tell Jay what he should tell our leaders when he meets with them in Parliament? Just use the form on the right to share your story now. 

Not sure what to say? Here are some suggestions:
  • Do the costs make it challenging for your family to access early learning? This is really useful for politicians to hear about!
  • Have you seen how important early learning is for children’s development? This is a great thing for our politicians to hear from you!
  • Is it difficult to find an early learning centre that suits your family’s needs? Let our politicians know.
  • Do you think everyone should be able to access high quality, early learning? Tell our politicians that!
  • Do you have a personal story about your family and early learning? That’s a perfect thing to tell our politicians about!

There’s no wrong thing to say! It’s just important that politicians hear about real experiences with the early learning system; whether there are things that make it challenging for you to access early learning, whether you’ve seen how important early learning is for children – whatever it is, they need to hear about it. 

 So tell Jay – what should he tell them? The more stories he takes to Parliament, the more impact the conversations will have.
