Delivery over 2020-21

After the success of the Working Together pilot in 2019, the initiative will be expanded to 20 early childhood education centres for delivery throughout 2020-21.

In 2020, Working Together will see the funding of 120 places for eligible children to engage in quality early learning, with a further 120 places opening in 2021. This means a total of 240 children will benefit from the initiative over the next two years.

Following an expression of interest (EOI) process, 20 early childhood education services have been selected to deliver Working Together in 2020 and 2021.

On Friday 6 December, the Minister for Education and Training, the honourable Jeremy Rockliff MP, announced the selected service partners for the next two years.  They are as follows:
