Terms & Conditions
A key highlight for the Government is to invest in the Early Year provision with the new doubling of hours from 600 to 1140 hours due to commence in 2020. So we are really disappointed that the private sector nurseries have been hit with substantial increases in rates when we have been fighting alongside NDNA (National Day Nurseries Association) to have rates for nurseries abolished, and at best substantially reduced, not substantially increased!
