10 DecFederal Government announces continued funding of ACECQA
ELAA welcomes today’s announcement from the Federal Minister for Education, the Hon Dan Tehan MP, to continue funding for the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) from 1 July 2020.
“We met with Minister Tehan a little over a week ago about the future funding of ACECQA,” said Early Learning Association Australia (ELAA) CEO David Worland. “Today’s announcement is a welcome relief and demonstrates that the Government is listening to early childhood sector representatives like ELAA and our peer organisations.”
“All the research supporting universal access to two years of play-based early childhood education stresses that it must be of high quality and ACECQA, with it’s oversight of the National Qualify Framework, provides a vital service as the regulator of quality in our sector,” said Mr Worland.
