Funding to ensure child care programs

Mr Chester said, "The funding is designed to help the organisations improve the viability and sustainability of the service for the community. Ensuring these child care programs are supported and can continue means that parents can work and rely on suitable care for their children outside of school or kinder hours."

Expanding facilities for more children

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."

Uniting Gippsland Family Day Care in Bairnsdale and Paynesville Neighbourhood Child Care Centre are two of seven organisations in Gippsland to receive funding through the latest round of the Federal Governments Community Child Care Fund.
