On the first official day of the election campaign, an election promise to help working mums.
Kevin Rudd has just announced an additional $450million for before and after school care.
Minister Kate Ellis has said “Not every job finishes at 3pm when the school bell rings”. Absolutely.
Up 500 schools and about 345,000 children aged 5-12 are expected to benefit.
Details at this point are sketchy, but we’ll have more detail and analysis for you soon.
Do you use before and after school care? Is it hard for you to get a place? Too expensive?
