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.
