What’s happening in Victoria?
Jul 24th, 2020 by earlyedushow
After a first wave that affected the entire country in March and April, COVID-19 cases are now particularly affecting Victoria. The Melbourne area is in lockdown, and early education services are finding themselves back in a situation where they are having to balance health and safety, financial viability and an uncertain funding arrangement. While most of the sector is focusing on just transitioning back to the Child Care Subsidy, many Victorian services are facing a much tougher battle.
