We are seeking your feedback, on the impact of early education funding through the Universal Access National Partnership.
The Universal Access National Partnership is the agreement between the Commonwealth and the state and territory governments to ensure all children have access to at least 600 hours per year of quality early childhood education in the year before full-time school. In 2020 it will provide $449.5 million in Commonwealth funding to states and territories, contributing around a third to the cost of providing access to 15 hours of early childhood education per child in the year before school.
The Universal Access National Partnership is currently under review and we are concerned it could end.
We are seeking your feedback to inform our advocacy and submission to the Commonwealth Government.
