The Morrison government has not committed to funding early childhood education beyond 2019. We’re campaigning for secure, ongoing funding for 15 hours of preschool for all three and four-year-olds, delivered by a degree-qualified early childhood teachers and co-educators. 

Support our preschools


Victoria is growing by 3,000 people every week. This means that 90,000 new students will enter Victoria’s schools in the next five years. Victoria needs a government that will commit to funding our students to the national average and deliver 1600 additional teachers to make sure no child gets left behind.

Support our schools


Victoria needs job-ready graduates – and that means a strong vocational education system with TAFE at the centre. We need a government that will guarantee at least 70% of vocational education funding goes to our public TAFEs.
