Every child deserves two years of preschool – one year as a three-year-old, and another as a four-year-old. The educational benefits are beyond question.
The solution is simple: the federal government must make its funding contribution permanent.
Since its introduction in 2013, preschool funding for four-year-olds has constantly been under threat, with federal governments only providing enough funding for 12-18 months. The current federal funding runs out in 2019. That’s why we are campaigning to ensure the federal government makes the funding permanent, once and for all.
