There is to be a change in the childcare sector in 2014 changing the current childcare ratios from 5:1 to be 4:1.
What this means is that there will be increases in family daycare fees by at least 25-30% and it is estimated by at least 70% per hour in preschool and long daycare centres.
We would like to see an increase of $2.50 to the Child Care Benefit (CCB) contributions due to the change in children/educator ratios which are to be brought into effect 2014.
This proposal will help families cope with sudden fee increases brought about by the government's decision.
The Increase Child Care Benefit (CCB) contributions petition to childcare educators was written by Shortwater Family Day-Care and is in the category Government at GoPetition.
