Value every child,
value every educator.
Together, we're building the world-class early learning system Australia deserves.
Thousands of centres have revealed the impacts of the escalating workforce crisis on their day to day operations in this damning report.
The results show that, despite millions of dollars in additional Federal Government subsidies to make early education more affordable for families, the crisis has only deepened.
Your union for early childhood educators.
We’re early educators, just like you, who have joined together to fight for respect, fairness and a world-class early education system that puts children and educators before profits. We campaign at centres for the rights of our coworkers, we negotiate better pay and conditions for educators, and we change government policy to create the early learning system Australia’s children and educators deserve.
Are you a parent or caregiver?
Find out how you can support our campaign for a world-class early learning system that puts children & educators ahead of profit.
There are a number of things families can do to show their support for the campaign, as well as keep abreast of all the news. To start with, talk to your child’s educators, as they will know if there any upcoming events/actions that you can attend or help them organise.
You should also join up to the Parenthood, an organisation that supports Big Steps and campaigns on early childhood issues. Also, make sure you’re following the Big Steps Campaign on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
