Kindy funding extension of only one year is not good enough

Like a lot of people, I've been campaigning to put pressure on the government to extend their commitment to kindy funding.

At the moment the Universal Access kindy funding is due to run out at the end of this year. That's the funding that goes to the states, to cover a third of the cost of giving pre-school age kids access to fifteen hours of teaching a week.

Alongside many others, I've called on the Turnbull government Minister, Senator Birmingham, to extend the funding. 

He has finally caved and agreed to extend the funding beyond 2017 - but by only one year.

That means the funding is now scheduled to run out at the end of 2018.

I don't think this is good enough.
