Protect Our Preschools is campaigning for ongoing, guaranteed funding for 15 hours of kindergarten for four-year-olds under the Universal Access funding agreement between the federal and state governments.
Why are we campaigning?
95% of four-year-olds in Australia are enrolled in a government-funded program of 15 hours per week of preschool.
But this is under threat from the federal government, which won’t guarantee its share of the funding beyond 2018.
Preschool is vital for a child’s development because it gives them the social and educational skills they need to achieve at school.
That’s why the AEU is calling on the federal government to secure ongoing funding for preschools and end the uncertainty facing parents and staff.
