It's Jess Rudd, the interim CEO of The Parenthood.
I am really sorry to bother you, but we could use your support! We've been trying to figure out how fee increases in early childhood education and care are affecting parents and carers all over Australia.
Two weeks ago, we reached out to the top 50 early learning providers in the country and asked them why they increased fees and what for, but only a handful of them responded. Can you believe it? It's incredibly frustrating!
To get a real grasp of the situation, we need your help.
We've put together a short survey to better understand the extent of the current fee increases and what they mean to parents and carers.
Please click here: It will take you less than 5 minutes to take the survey - promise 😊
Your input really makes a difference! It helps us to fully understand how much fees have gone up by - and we can keep the pressure on decision-makers.
We're immensely grateful for your time and your support.
Thanks a bunch!
