📑 Kristine Ziwica on the Governments Decision to Make Childcare Free


Kristine Ziwica discuses the move to make childcare free. As Laura Tingle highlights, nothing will be the same again. However, as Lisa Bryant points on:

Every playground in the country has been closed to stop the virus spreading. So why is it OK for hundreds of children to play together at a childcare centre?

Services should be open for essential workers and vulnerable families. But others should consider keeping their children at home where possible.

I’m also sad because not all our education and care services will be protected, not all educators’ and teachers’ jobs will be safe.

This is why I would rather try and continue keeping my child at home. However, I am happier that the government has stepped in to cover the cost, rather than be charged for absence days.
