Childcare workers have a tougher time of it now than they did during the COVID-19 pandemic, one professional has revealed.

Centres will be closing down across Australia today as staff walk off the job, calling for better pay and more workers.

Ruth Harper from East West Child Care in Melbourne said she hoped most parents would support the action.

“Not only does that mean that staff numbers are down, but we’re losing that knowledge and wisdom that we have there with them, and who’s going to replace them?”
