#ParentsUp Petition

Parenting is one of life’s greatest joys. But in Australia it can be a massive struggle to balance children, work and the bills.
That's why we need better Paid Parental Leave (i.e. maternity or paternity leave) and high-quality, inclusive, affordable Early Childhood Education and Care (i.e. childcare/family day care/preschool and kinder) and Outside School Hours Care (i.e. before/after school care and vacation care/holiday programs) - so parents, carers and children can thrive.
Quality Early Childhood Education and Care also starts with quality Early Educators. Early childhood Educators need to be valued, supported and fairly paid.

We are calling on every Federal political representative to make elections commitments on:

1. One year of Paid Parental Leave to be shared between parents, at full pay including super.

2. Universal access to Early Childhood Education and Care and Outside School Hours Care delivered by a well supported and properly paid workforce.
