e-Child Times June 2016

Welcome to the June edition of e-Child Times.

Welcome to the June edition of the e-child TIMES. With election fever in the air, it is a good time to remind all sides of politics of the importance of leadership in early childhood learning and development. Child Australia advocates for children on many levels; including publications like this, and across a range of platforms such as conferences, training events and webinars. We have three messages that we would like to convey to policymakers, regardless of political persuasion:
The critical importance of access to quality early learning and care for all children from birth to five;

  • That access to quality early learning and care needs to be recognised as
    a universal human right not a workplace strategy; and
  • The call for cross-portfolio Federal Government approaches that support
    coordination of key areas such as child health, education and care, and
    family support.
