This is a message to Tony Abbott about childcare. We need your help to get it out there because significant changes are on the way for Australia’s early learning and care system.
We’re worried that …
- instead of making childcare more affordable for families many will see their out-of-pocket costs increase.
- mums will be left with no choice about going back to work - wondering if it’s worth it if so much of their wage will just be going to meet the increased cost for childcare.
- a lot of families will actually loose ALL financial support for childcare and be forced to remove their children from early learning or face full fees.
- this will mean thousands of children will be denied their right to access highquality early learning and care.
Right now the government is only focused on “…how to limit extra spending on childcare while minimising the number of families left worse off." SMH 30 Mar 2015.
We thought Mr Abbott got it when we made the decision to scrap his Paid Parental Leave scheme and instead re-direct funds into quality early learning.
Clearly we need to remind him. Can you help keep this TV ad on the air?
Will you help the thousands of families depending on Mr Abbott to get this right?
