KARINGAL PLACE NEIGHBOURHOOD CENTRE OCCASIONAL CARE IS BEING CLOSED LEAVING HUNDREDS OF FAMILIES WITHOUT CHILDCARE.


The Turnbull Liberal Government has quietly gutted a national childcare program which is set to leave more than 50 neighbourhood houses across Victoria without vital funding, including in Frankston. 


Last year, Liberal Federal Education Minister Simon Birmingham confirmed he will cut the National Occasional Care Program, leaving kids, parents and neighbourhood houses out to dry in just four months time. Despite this , our local member, Chris Crewther MP, has denied any knowledge of these cuts.


The program – due to expire in July – funds flexible childcare for 143 providers in Victoria, 52 of which are neighbourhood houses, including Karingal Place Community Centre. This vicious cut leaves many families out in the cold with no childcare option for working parents, resulting in situations where they have no means to earn a wage.


We call on Chris Crewther and the Liberals to immediately continue the program to give local families some peace of mind, or immediately provide adequate, comparable alternative childcare solutions.
