Election Survey - Commonwealth of Australia 2016 - Q7


Q7 - Early education


This year a new program, Start Early, is being rolled out in childcare centres and kindergartens – backed by Early Education Australia, whose CEO says young children are “sexual beings” (Herald Sun, 6/3/16).  Among other things, the program will talk about cross-dressing and gender “choice”, and take toddlers on tours of opposite-sex toilets.

Would you vote to ensure that no taxpayer funding is given to any program that prematurely sexualises children or promotes harmful theories about gender fluidity?

Family First

Yes, definitely. We do not support taxpayer funding of radical programs that target young children with inappropriate content regarding gender or sexuality.  Such programs are part of a radical agenda targeting children to change the next generation’s attitudes to gender, sexuality, marriage and their bodies.  These programs are, at their core, anti-parent because they seek to use the state’s access to children in early education to conflict with the values of parents.  Families must form the values of children, not government.  Allowing the government to manipulate the views of young children, in  defiance of parental rights, is a very dangerous social experiment indeed.

The Start Early program is not a Commonwealth program. It was developed by the not-for-profit organisation Early Childhood Australia and is supported by the New South Wales Government.

  The Coalition Government does not fund the Start Early initiative and will not do so in future.
