The Federal Government has today announced free childcare due to the Coronavirus to assist working parents and to keep childcare centres open.
The $1.6 billion package is structured to be paid directly to centres and parents will not be required to pay the gap.

So they'll earn less? And therefore have more incentive to close. If the only daycare in the area closes how am I supposed to go work- I own and operate the only grocery store in our town.

It’s about time!! If you aren’t working your child should not even be in childcare at this point. They should be at home, in isolation with you!

I hope this is an old photo Rick Wilson

My Daughter in law works at Albany Hospital and my son works in an essential service. My 1 yo grandson attends Goodstart Child Care. They do not get free child care. Why? This is very unfair. 😡😡😡😡😡

So centers receiving a quarter of their income and being required to still maintain all their standards, when job keeper legislation hasnt been passed in parliament, I'm just gob smacked - this isn't great news at all. Great for families yes, for centres on the brink or already shut, I'm just speechless

Why are you not being honest about all of the cuts to education that are happening? You are just as responsible for the special needs children going without there EA. If you stand with shandro you must believe in what he did. You are no better

Great news.

I was inspired to run for Parliament following my involvement in a decade-long campaign to deregulate the wheat industry, which brought about the end of the Australia Wheat Board’s monopoly.

“I stand proudly for the Liberal philosophy of free markets, vigorous competition, small government and individual responsibility. These are the principles that guide me in my life and in this place. My track record in public life shows clearly that I am prepared to stand up for those principles.”

“To the electors of O'Connor, I reiterate the commitment that I have made to work tirelessly on your behalf, to always be frank and honest about the challenges we face, and to work cooperatively and collaboratively to improve the lives of the people who live in the greatest part of the greatest nation on earth”
