Back the LHMU childcare workers

On Thursday 15 March Victoria’s LHMU Childcare Union members will launch their campaign to strengthen Victoria’s childcare regulations.

To help them tell the community why the current regulations are not working for Victoria's children, we've made a YouTube video.

LHMU Childcare Union members explain why we're asking for:
  • Higher staff to child ratios. 1:3 for children under two, 1:5 for two to three year olds, and 1:8 for threes years and over.
  • More weekly planning time. Four hours for room leaders and one hour for assistants.
  • Increased training. Minimum qualifications requirement of TAFE Certificate III.
