Last week, peak bodies CELA, ELAA and CCC launched an ambitious 6 point plan designed to inform Government around how our sector can be reformed. The plan calls for better wages and conditions for our workforce, access to quality, inclusive care for all children, and a national workforce strategy.
“Our 6 point plan supports children, families and early educators.” says Michele Carnegie, CELA CEO. “The cornerstones of our plan are two fully-funded days of early education and care each week, an investment in quality and higher pay for the education and care workforce. Our plan is a blueprint for the government to ensure every child gets the best possible start in life. It means every child has the same opportunities, regardless of what their family earns or where they live."
Find out what our plan entails, and how you can get involved via our upcoming forum to help amplify the solutions we’ve put forward.
