Shortly Mr Abbott will be handing down the Federal Budget.
What we do not want to see is a reduction in the current funding amounts that is allocated to ensure every 4-year-old child can access a year of Quality Kindergarten in the year before they commence Primary school. The evidence is all there and clearly, shows that generally children who access a funded 4-year-old Kindergarten program for 15 hours per week are far more school ready and likely to thrive than those children who do not.
We are encouraging all families to click on the following link to learn more about this crucial issue facing our young children and to support the petition included.
Together we can send a very strong and clear message to Mr Abbott about what our 4-year-old children in this country need to give them the best possible start in their educational journey.
We ask that if you agree that children should maintain their current access to 15 hours of funded 4 year old Kindergarten that you consider being part of the voice that the children cannot be themselves.
