Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester said $110,000 had been allocated to the providers to help with operational costs. "Tillys Dream Pty Ltd and Churchill North Primary School have received funding to continue providing quality care and keep services accessible to local families," Mr Chester said.

Ensuring suitable care for children

Mr Chester said, "Tillys Dream Pty Ltd will use the funding to support In 2 Learn Traralgon South and In 2 Learn Glengarry programs, while Churchill North Primary School will support the before and after school care programs."

"Ensuring these child care programs are supported and can continue means that parents can work and rely on the suitable care for their children outside of school or kinder hours."

Access to quality childcare

Minister for Education and Youth Alan Tudge said more than 640 child care services around Australia would share in more than $100 million through the program. "We are committed to giving every Australian family access to quality child care, regardless of where they live or their circumstances," Minister Tudge said.

"In some remote areas, there may only be one or two child care services operating and it is critical we keep these open and help improve and expand facilities so more kids can attend. This program also helps services to run initiatives that reduce barriers which may otherwise prevent local kids from accessing care." Minister Tudge also said.

Tillys Dream Pty Ltd and Churchill North Primary School are two of seven organisations in Gippsland to receive funding through the latest round of the Federal Governments Community Child Care Fund.
