Funding Cuts Prompt Day Care Changes

Wagga City Council says Federal funding cuts of more than 200 thousand dollars have resulted in the loss of 2 part-time positions and reduced Child Development Officer hours at Wagga Regional Family Day Care.

A statement from Council says it’s taken steps now to ensure the sustainability and viability of the local Daycare service into the future, after being advised by the Department of Education and Training that its annual Community Support Program will cease.

Community Sector Manager Janice Summerhayes says the co-ordination unit will continue to provide monitoring, training and support to all Educators, and for parents, there will be no impact to their child’s day in care.
