Government’s 2019 Budget – what’s in the basket for ECE?

30 May 2019

The Government announced their first Wellbeing Budget today at 2pm.

Those from the ECE sector were not sure what to expect, if anything – but idealistically we held out hope.

In a nutshell, all ECE services get a 1.8% increase in their subsidies, effective 1stJanuary 2020.

There are a range of other indirect benefits that may impact on some ECE services, but clearly not all.

Go here for a summary of the Budget as it applies to ECE Centres.

More to come.
