Early childhood out of the Ministry

Tony Abbott has announced the make-up of the Ministry in his new Government, and Early Childhood hasn’t made the cut.

Sussan Ley, the previous Shadow Minister for Childcare and Early Learning, is now the Assistant Minister for Education.

The Labor Government appointed the first ever Cabinet Ministers for Early Childhood in 2010.

As well as managing community not-for-profit early childhood operations in a variety of roles, I have advocated for children's human rights; the need for investment in early childhood education; and for professional recognition and wages for those working in early childhood education and care.

I am available to be commissioned for freelance writing, editing, event speaking and consulting work.
