Parenting is one of life’s greatest joys. But in Australia it can be a massive struggle to balance children, work and the bills.
For parents, carers and our children to thrive, we need:
Expanded Paid Parental Leave (i.e. maternity or paternity leave).
High quality, affordable, available Early Childhood Education and Care (i.e. childcare/family day care/preschool and kinder).
High quality, affordable, available Outside School Hours Care (i.e. before/after school care and vacation care/holiday programs).
Early childhood Educators to be valued, supported and fairly paid.
And a BIG thank you to all the organisations supporting and signing the petition and spreading the word!
