"Parents in Melbourne are under pressure. With only one in five childcare centres offering vacancies every day, urgent action is needed to fix the system" 

Adam Bandt

Better Work/Life Balance

Balancing of work and home responsibilities is a full-time chore. Two-thirds of women working full-time report having chronic time-pressure stress.  

  • Adam has introduced legislation to improve work/life balance, especially for those who care for others.


If we're serious about improving helping women return to work and reducing stress on families, more affordable childcare services must be introduced. 

  • Adam and The Greens have a plan to expand universal access and provide more affordable and accessible early childhood education to more children.
