Joy Burch is letting it be known there are more childcare places coming online:
“New childcare centres opening at the Franklin Early Childhood School (120 places) and at Barton (88 places) commencing operation shortly will give Canberra families combined total of 208 new places,” Ms Burch said.
“In addition, investment in existing ACT Government facilities has added 33 additional places in Braddon and Charnwood. Two new family day care services have also been approved for the ACT.”
Ms Burch said the ACT Labor Government’s significant investment in childcare and strategic planning has seen the number of childcare places double since 2001, with more than 8200 childcare places now offered to families across Canberra.
