In the coming weeks our elected representatives in Canberra will be making important funding decisions about early learning and childcare in Australia.

Australia lags behind most developed nations in funding quality early childhood education, meaning that many vulnerable children are often left behind and families are spending as much as 30% of their income on childcare.

We urgently need more funding so every child can benefit from high quality early learning – and that families can afford.

Send a message to your local Member of Parliament below and ask them to stand up for affordable, quality early learning and care.

You can write you own message with your personal situation for maximum impact – just delete the text in the box below and write in your own.
