Victorian Government's plan for the Early Childhood Sector

The Australian Government will provide $1.7 billion over 3 years from 2022-23 (and $671.2 million per annum ongoing from 2025-26) to assist families with more than one child under six in childcare and reduce out-of-pocket costs.

A new $2 billion, 4-year national reform commitment will be established to strengthen the delivery of preschool and better prepare children to start school.

Government’s plan locks in ongoing Australian Government funding beyond 2025, with reforms to be agreed with all states and territories to lift preschool attendance and outcomes.

The Victorian Government is investing almost $5 billion over the decade to deliver Three-Year-Old Kindergarten. This investment will create an additional 6,000 teaching jobs across Victoria.
