THE HON TANYA PLIBERSEK MP
SHADOW MINISTER FOR EDUCATION AND TRAINING
ACTING SHADOW MINISTER FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT
MEMBER FOR SYDNEY
Today’s reports of huge increases in child care fees are very concerning for Australian families struggling with the cost of child care.
Under the Liberal Government child care fees have gone up 28 per cent, and families are paying thousands of dollars more for early learning and care.
The Government has no plans to bring fees under control.
The Minister says families should shop around. That shows just how out of touch the Liberals are. Families are struggling to find a child care place and settle their kids in a centre.
Australian families need help. They aren’t getting it from this Liberal Government.
