Quality, play-based education sets kids up for life. But there is a lack of access. 

Access to quality childcare makes makes it easier for parents to work or study, thus offering hope and opportunity for a better life for the whole family. 

That is why we're asking the State government to ensure no upfront cost for the lowest income households to access high quality, play-based early childhood care.  

Here’s the quick facts:

  • Quality Childhood education improves all aspects of child development and gets them ready for school and future success. 
  • It helps to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty and entrenched disadvantage. 

The Equity project is calling for:

  • Improved access and participation of Maternal and Child Health Checks in the first two years of life through improved outreach and flexible delivery of services.
  • WA Government supports universal access to high quality play-based kindergarten for all 3-year-olds and a staged transition of 4-year-old kindergarten up to 30 hours per week.
  • WA Government to establish Child Parent Hubs, improving the delivery of integrated and responsive child and family health, education and social care in all WA communities. This would build on and consolidate the existing support provided by the current Child Parent Centres system.

Can you help us call of the Government to close the equity gap and set children up for the future by backing our asks?
