Political and stakeholder engagement

ACA's continues to advocate on behalf of our members regarding the impact of the Coronavirus on the early learning sector, along with the long-term economic consequences.

ACA President Paul Mondo and Vice President Nesha Hutchinson are in regular discussions with Dan Tehan, Minister for Education, Skills and Employment, along with key Departmental staff, to reiterate the importance of ensuring that the early learning sector remains stable and that individual services remain viable throughout the coming weeks and indeed months.

The Australian Childcare Alliance (ACA) is acutely aware of the enormous effect the risk of the Coronavirus has had on the early learning sector.

Our state bodies continue to receive numerous enquiries on a daily basis from our members seeking advice as they navigate through this ever-changing landscape. Service providers are focussing on the immediate impact of the pandemic, what they need to do right now, what contingency plans they need to have in place and whether or not there is some form of goverment financial support available to help keep individual service providers afloat.
