Parents can now provide feedback on the nation’s first major review of childcare since the 1990s without having to make a full-length submission.
Member for Fisher Mal Brough said the Productivity Commission Inquiry into Childcare and Early Childhood Learning had the option for people to leave a “brief comment” via an online form.
“Working parents have never been busier,” he said. “They haven’t got time to sit down and lodge a full submission. Now they can say what they want quickly and easily on-line.
“With so many Sunshine Coast parents working in health and hospitality outside of standard child care hours of operation it is important their voices and experiences are heard.”
