[BF] 6 Weeks Free Childcare for Volunteer Firefighters at Goodstart Early Learning


Just saw this on Facebook so thought I would share.

Link to post - https://facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1069241620096990&i...

The bushfire situation across Australia is heartbreaking so we are reaching out to offer special support to our volunteer firefighters.

If you are a volunteer firefighter and are actively fighting the current bushfires we would like to support you to access up to 6 weeks of free care for your child/ren at our centres. You don’t have to be a current Goodstart family to qualify for this offer, the offer applies to any eligible* families across our Australian communities.

Please reach out to our Family Support Team at [email protected] or speak with your Centre Director directly so we can support you to access this as soon as possible.

*Offer must be used by the last day in February. Proof of membership and deployment information will need to be provided. Speak to our team for further terms.

Please click 'new' on the OzBargain home page, then 'personalise', then add bf in 'add a title tag', drag the slider to less, then save preference.

    Probably one of the most useful ideas compared to a free burrito/pizza

    • Yep, far better than most.

  • The catch is that the firefighter needs to be aged 0-5 years.

    How many goodstart kindergarten's exist in these regional areas with active bushfires? Their website seems to have all their centre locations concentrated in capital cities.

    • Nah they are all over, for example - https://www.goodstart.org.au/centres/south-nowra which is at the heart of the south coast fire

    • Probably not in the really rural areas but my husband is an RFS volunteer - we live on the outskirts of Brisbane on acreage but send our son to a goodstart centre about 6km from home in suburbia because it’s on the way to work. He is currently waiting for approval to go on deployment down to NSW for 5 days to help out - so I think this deal could actually be utilised by some volunteers.

    Good but not as good as a Dominos pepperoni.
