Join the campaign to step up for quality education.
Every Australian who wants a great country tomorrow understands that our children need great opportunities today.
As early childhood educators we help create these opportunities, as education shapes the future choices and chances of our children.
However, we are some of the lowest paid professionals in Australia, many of us struggling on just twenty dollars an hour.
This is crazy. The sector needs not only to attract but to keep educators. Short-changing those who are educating and caring for the next generation of Australians isn’t only unjust – it’s bad policy.
We are a movement of educators from all across Australia, with families and our communities standing beside us. Our message is simple: a responsible government that values Australia’s future, must value our role in shaping the future.
It’s time for the Federal Government to value our future and pay us the respect we deserve. It’s time for Big Steps.
