Australia should support all families with free childcare.
This would help with the liberal democratic principle of equal opportunity as
Give all children the benefit of early development
of basic learning and social skills, so critical to their future development
and life opportunities;
Give parents the opportunity to study, train, work
and build some financial independence, without their children missing out on
support in their development or the heavy cost impost of privately funded
childcare (the cost of private childcare is particularly burdensome or
unaffordable for those on low incomes).
