Chief Minister Gallagher is promising more childcare centres, places, and educated workers if given another 4 years at the top:
If re-elected, ACT Labor will provide $4.5 million to deliver more affordable quality childcare across Canberra to create up to 100 new childcare places.
We will release at least three additional sites for new childcare centres with Woden, Tuggeranong and Belconnen to be prioritised. ACT Labor will offer $6,000 scholarships for early childhood education and care educators wishing to get a degree in early childhood education.
We will extend our Certificate III scholarships program and provide $740,000 to give up to 90 more early childhood educators the chance to further their education.
