LOCAL COMMUNITY BASED EARLY CHILD HOOD CENTRE MUNDARDA WILL BE
HIT BY BARNETT GOVERNMENT DECISION TO ABOLISH ACCOMMODATION
Local MLA, Dr Tony Buti said, “Many local families rely on Mundarda to care for their children and
are understandably upset by this threat to the service.”
“Mundarda is a community based organisation providing high quality early childhood care for local
children ranging from babies to after-school and vacation care for students,” he said.
“Abolishing the accommodation subsidy for community early childhood centres is just another
sneaky way for this incompetent government to attempt to balance the budget.” Dr Buti said.
“Once again the State Government goes after the most vulnerable but keeps spending millions in
self-promoting advertising and accommodation for the Premier.”
“Community based early childhood centres such as Mundarda are an asset to our community, yet
the government is undermining that service and creating uncertainty for families.
“WA has a childcare shortage, with long wait lists for many childcare centres. The government
says it wants to encourage women into the workforce, yet this decision by the Liberal Government
will make the situation worse.”
You can sign a petition to keep Mundarda and other early childhood centres open at Dr Buti’s
office, 2898 Albany Highway Kelmscott.
