NSW educators rally over Government funding plans

Early childhood educators in NSW have rallied outside State Parliament to protest the NSW Government’s planned changes to funding early childhood education.

Leanne Gibbs helped organise a rally of childcare workers held outside State Parliament this morning.

“What essentially we’re asking for is a proper model of funding that ensures that children have access and that means three-year-olds as well,” Ms Gibbs said.

“We’re looking for a visionary approach to policy in this state and to funding early childhood education, so we want to see more money going into the childhood sector.

“We’re looking at a sector that could become unviable.”
