2021 April. Kids First – (Youtube video): “Federal Budget 2021 Child Care Funding: Kids First President Helen Ward“.
Child care is the care of a child, whoever does it. Child care is socially essential work, whoever does it. But the government discriminates by excluding parental child care and favouring group care in daycare centres. It’s 2021. It’s time to let parents – and especially women – make choices for their families without financial coercion from government. Fund children, not spaces and systems.
