The early years of children’s lives have a significant impact on their development later on in life. “Children learn more in their first five years than at any other time in their lives,” said Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority (ACECQA) Chair Rachel Hunter.
Supporting optimal early childhood development greatly increases children’s chances of:
- a successful transition to school
- developing strong language and learning skills
- better education, employment and health after school
