Early Learning: Policies for Children's First 3 Years - May 2012
May 2012 - Early Learning - the first of a series of Policy Briefs that will build towards our submission on the National Early Years Strategy - focuses on children's first 3 years - a neglected area of Government policy.
Children start learning from their very first days. But our main support for children's early learning - the Free Pre-School Year - is only available from 3 years and 2 months at the earliest. Children and families need services and supports right from the start of a child's life.
