Written answers (Question to Education)

The matter raised by the Deputy relates to preschool education and childcare. These matters fall within the remit of my colleagues, the Minister for Children & Youth Affairs.

My Department does not provide funding to preschool services other than to early intervention for children with Autism.

Supports for childcare, including preschool education, are provided by the Department of Children and Youth Affairs (DCYA).
