Preschool Funding Boost

Saturday, 3 February, 2018

The Turnbull Government has locked in a $440 million funding boost for preschool education and is urging states to boost the enrolment and attendance rates of preschoolers in early learning. Minister for Education and Training Simon Birmingham said the extra funding would extend the National Partnership on Universal Access to Early Childhood Education into 2019 to more than 348,000 children to ensure they have access to 15 hours of quality early learning in the year before school. The Turnbull Government’s $440 million funding boost secures education opportunities for more than 348,000 of Australia’s littlest learners, Minister Birmingham said.
