The project reviews current financing mechanisms for early childhood education and care (ECEC) in Australia and internationally. It considers the general social and economic rationale for the provision of government financing for ECEC in Australia and other countries, reviews the objectives of various financing models, and considers the extent to which Australia’s current model is appropriately designed to meet its objectives. Alternative financing models are considered.
