Thank you for helping us keep childcare fair.

Following valuable input from the community, we have introduced an updated Priority of Access Policy. You can view the updated policy here.

The updated policy helps ensure that our childcare and kindergarten places are offered to families with the greatest need.

In February and March 2019 we hosted a survey to check the level of support for the policy and to help us understand different community perspectives. You can view a summary of the feedback here. This informed several changes to the policy and these improvements are summarised here.

The updated policy was formally adopted by Yarra Council at its meeting of Tuesday 30 April 2019. You can view the Council Report here (item 11.6) and the Council Minutes here (item 11.6).
