Australian families could be in for a rude shock come July 1 as the Liberal Government’s unfair Child Care Subsidy (CCS) could leave many in thousands of dollars of debt.
A new report released by The Front Project today has again highlighted the significant education, health and economic benefits from investment in preschool. The Report has estimated that the community gets two dollars back for every dollar spent on early learning – it is clearly a smart investment.

JOHANNA NICHOLSON: And to discuss this, we're talking to Jason Falinski and Amanda Rishworth. Thank you both for your time this morning. Amanda, I will start with you, we have seen the tensions blow over with the CFMEU. Is it time for the Labor Party to reassess its ties to the union movement?
SUBJECT/S: John Setka, Manus Island, Tax cuts
DAVID BEVAN: Let's welcome our panellists in the studio, Amanda Rishworth, Labor MP for Kingston.
AMANDA RISHWORTH, SHADOW MINISTER FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION AND DEVELOPMENT: Good morning.
SUBJECT/S: AFP raids, Early Education
TOM CONNELL: Amanda Rishworth thanks for your time. Let’s start with these AFP raids. Labor was saying the government had questions to answer, the government has said it has no role in the timing of these nor in the referrals as well. Do you accept them at their word?
I am honoured to be reappointed to the Shadow Labor Cabinet as the Shadow Minister for Early Childhood Education and Development and as Shadow Minister for Youth.
Investment in young people is the best investment we can make for our future and bringing these two portfolios together will ensure there is a sharp focus on our children and young people.
SHORTEN, O'CONNOR & RISHWORTH - MEDIA RELEASE - BETTER PAY FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATORS - SUNDAY, 28 APRIL 2019
A Shorten Labor Government will ensure Australia’s early childhood educators are better paid, supporting a quality early education and care system that delivers the best outcomes for children.
Early childhood educators are doing the important and demanding job of educating and caring for our next generation – 90 per cent of a child’s brain development occurs in the first five years of a child’s life.
A Shorten Labor Government will deliver massive cost of living relief for nearly one million families struggling with the costs of child care.
From July next year, Labor will put more money back in working parents’ pockets for 887,000 Australian families – slashing up to $2,100 per child off their annual child care bill.
Labor has launched its comprehensive plan for ADF Personnel and Veterans today, which solidifies our commitment to our current and ex-service personnel and their families.
In the past three years, Labor has announced a number of policies which will overwhelmingly support both current serving personnel, as well as veterans and their families.
Today, we launch Labor’s Plan for our ADF Personnel and Veterans which includes 22 policies that will directly support current and ex-serving members and their families.
A Shorten Labor Government will commit $20 million to establish the Australian Centre for Innovative Manufacturing at Flinders University, to boost industry and research collaboration and skills development in a world class Factory of the Future.
This investment will bring together leading researchers, industry, government and unions to modernise and transform South Australian manufacturing.
Establishment of this world-class manufacturing industry growth facility at Tonsley Park will help to spread advanced manufacturing technologies and processes across Australia.
