Every family deserves childcare choice yet for far too many country families the only choice is one parent staying home. Many rural communities are too small to support a fully staffed childcare centre yet government regulations, red tape, and union opposition make opening a centre-based family day care difficult or even impossible. In Ripon this problem is particularly acute around Donald and Charlton.
You can help get change so that country families get access to local childcare. Please sign this petition, share the link, tell your friends, write to the Minister Jenny Mikakos and your local council saying this matters to you.
