Invest in early learning. Invest in educators.

Victorian preschools need investment

Victorian families deserve access to affordable, high-quality preschools with teachers and educators, who work so hard for our kids, being valued and respected in their jobs.

About the Campaign

A preschool education sets every child up to succeed.  Protect our Preschools fights for investment in early learning, now and in the future.


What we’re fighting for

We won!

Thanks to you, Victorian families have another two years of funding!

Because we stood together the Federal Government has guaranteed funding 15 hours a week of preschool for every four year old in 2016 and 2017. However, this is not the end of the fight. We must keep up the pressure to make sure preschool funding is extended beyond 2017.
