We seek your views on national funding and policy for education of children in the year before full-time school (preschool)
An independent review (the Review) is being conducted into the national funding arrangements that support access by all children in Australia to 600 hours per year of quality early childhood education in the year before full-time school. The Review was commissioned by State, Territory and Australian Government Education Ministers as a key input into their consideration of future funding in this area. Nous Group is conducting the Review on behalf of all Australian governments and will present its final report in the first half of 2020.
We listened to the views and experiences of parents and carers, preschool and school staff and leaders, representative and peak bodies, early childhood education experts and researchers and others.
