Latest News Media release | Feb 2, 2015

Goodstart Early Learning, Australia’s largest provider of early learning and care, welcomes the Federal Government’s commitment to make quality childcare and early learning more affordable.

Goodstart’s John Cherry said the Prime Minister’s confirmation that his government would consult widely on improved access to quality early learning was a vital step.

“Access to quality affordable childcare is critical for parents of young children to participate in the workforce.

“Today’s confirmation that the Federal Government is moving to better fund childcare assistance is great news for Australian families.

“Goodstart looks forward to working with Social Services Minister Scott Morrison as detailed discussion begin on increased funding for quality education and care.

“Quality early learning benefits not only our children through-out school and later life, but our nation through providing a hand-up for disadvantaged families and of course through improved workforce participation rates for mothers.”
