The Parenthood is calling on all levels of government to improve access to early childhood education and care (ECEC) in regional, rural and remote Australia.
Access to ECEC can be tricky anywhere in Australia, but particularly so in the regions. The report ‘Deserts and oases: How accessible is childcare?' found that regional and remote families are most likely to suffer from limited ECEC access.
It's not good enough. Federal, state and territory governments need to understand that this issue is widespread, has many flow-on effects, and needs urgent change.
Can you please help us convince them by sharing your experiences with rural, remote and regional ECEC?
