The Minns Government shouldn’t attempt to use changes to federal childcare subsidies as a smokescreen to short-change NSW parents. The Minns Labor Government have to date been silent on this issue and have not committed to the rollout of the Childcare and Economic Opportunity Fund, meaning there is no financial support flowing to families.
The Labor Party refused to match the previous Liberal Government’s support for working parents prior to the election and have also only committed to 100 new preschools this term – one fifth of the 500 preschools the Coalition had earmarked. They have also only allocated a mere $22 million package, versus the $282 million committed by the Coalition to support early childhood teachers and educators.
Supporting Local Businesses
It was an honour to attend the Sydney Hills Business Chamber lunch at the amazing restaurant OSSO at Rouse Hill. This Chamber, under the leadership of Chamber President Kerrie Sheaves, is by far the most proactive for its Members, and I encourage any local business to give them a call to see how they can help their business grow. Please contact Richard Holland on 9659 3366 or email the chamber at: [email protected]
