Every child deserves quality early learning and childcare yet the costs make it a challenge for many of us to afford it.
In the coming weeks politicians will be making important decisions about the funding of childcare.
I just emailed my local Member of Parliament and let them know how important affordable childcare is to me.
Will you email your local MP, too? http://thesmartstart.com.au/email-your-local-federal-mp
It's fast and easy and could make a real difference. The more of us who do it, the more impact we will have. Here's the link: http://thesmartstart.com.au/email-your-local-federal-mp

I emailed my local MP, the PM, most WA senators, the Deputy Minister for Women, the Minister for Social Services and the relevant shadow minister/deputy ministers about 4 weeks ago about my significant concerns with the productivity commission's recommendations on childcare and early childhood learning.
So far I've had one "Thanks for emailing, we'll get back to you" from a shadow minister and one "we'll pass this on to Scott Morrison because we don't care" from the PM's office. It's disheartening! This is an issue which could have substantial ramifications for my family and I don't feel like they're listening.
