Quality is key in Early Childhood Education in Australia(2017)
Early education benefits all children, and can be transformative for the children with the greatest challenges. But not all children in Australia experience a high quality early education. Getting quality right is the key piece of the puzzle needed to deliver the promise of early education. This policy brief draws on evidence generated by the Effective Early Educational Experiences (E4Kids) study. It concludes that in order to lift quality across the system, supports that strengthen early childhood educator capability must be a core focus, and that efforts must be targeted to ensure additional support for vulnerable cohorts.
