Children currently access 15 hours of Kindergarten each week – 10 hours funded by the state government and five by the Federal Government but Malcolm Turnbull won’t commit to continuing to fund his share.
The Federal funding will run out at the end of 2017 unless the Turnbull government commits to permanent investment in Universal Access
We know that high-quality preschool education sets children up for life. They deserve nothing less. Parents deserve certainty and staff deserve job security.
On two previous occasions we have campaigned successfully to secure funding. It is frustrating that we find ourselves yet again at the mercy of the Commonwealth Government to make this important investment in our children’s early education.
We need to work together again to secure the full 15 hours a week that our children deserve.
