We need funding that works for early education and care of children living in remote Australian communities. Please help us to save our Centre. Our families in the Fitzroy Valley are working hard to build a strong, healthy and vibrant community. We need your help to tell government to invest in it too.

When we invest in our children today,
we’re investing in our future.

BAYA GAWIY EARLY CHILDHOOD LEARNING UNIT

  • 90% of children are from working families
  • Some have complex needs
  • Local cultural knowledge + best early learning practices
  • Break cycles of trauma and disadvantage

WE NEED

  • Urgent funding to keep the doors open from 1 July 2017
  • Dedicated funding for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children that is stable and long term

OUR FUNDING

The Government thinks that the Jobs for Families Package will fund us from 1 July 2018.
but
Funding runs out for Baya Gawiy Early Childhood Learning Unit in July 2017!
plus
The Jobs for Families Package won’t work for us anyway unless it is changed.Funding designed for city centres doesn’t work for remote communities.
