21 SepSupplementary State Budget Submission to Victorian Government 2020-21
This submission is supplementary to ELAA’s Pre-budget Submission to the Victorian Government 2020-2021 and takes account of the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the early childhood sector and our members. It provides advice to the Victorian State Government on its delayed State Budget for 2020-2021. As Victoria prepares for COVID Normal, ELAA is advocating for:
- clarity of financial support for services in hotspots
- strengthened early years management in the face of an emerging crisis among volunteer parent-managed services
- a fully funded employee assistance scheme for the sector
- the State Government to advocate at National Cabinet for a fully integrated early childhood sector.
