08 OctELAA CEO update 8 October 2020
Welcome to the first edition of eNews for Term four. I hope all our members and supporters managed to find some time to relax during the break after another COVID dominated term. With the handing down of the Australian Government’s 20/21 Budget on Tuesday night, ELAA recognises the Government’s continued efforts to maintain targeted and commensurate levels of support to Child Care service providers and the families they serve in a severely challenging economic climate, however, ELAA will continue to advocate to the government for additional reforms that support a long-term vision for early childhood education and care. Please see our full media release in response to the Budget by CLICKING HERE .
More generally, it’s pleasing to see Victoria taking control of the virus, going from 725 reported cases on 5 August to just six cases yesterday. A reminder that ELAA has an excellent coronavirus COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions page on its website plus a suite of targeted ‘member only’ resources in our website member’s area to help you manage the governance of your service, and the wellbeing of your staff and children. Further information about our latest member only resources is available in this week’s eNews.
Take care, stay positive, and we look forward to another term of supporting you to deliver the best outcomes for the families and children at your service.
