11 May 2015 - Budget 2015: Childcare system receives shake-up under new Government plan to support low income families.

ACA President Ms Gwynn Bridge said that the Australian Government should be commended for not only listening to the expert advice of the early childhood sector but more importantly committing to measures that will ensure children can access early childhood education in the majority of circumstances.
