Access to early learning is every child’s right

Early learning is a highly effective intervention to improve the future lives and education of Australia’s children.
Goodstart believes all of Australia’s children should have continued access to affordable, high quality early learning and care, and actively advocates to government and the community for:

  • Quality early learning maintain, embed and enhance the National Quality Framework, support enhanced evidence-informed practice delivered by a valued and effective workforce
  • Universal access — to secure long-term funding of quality early learning in the two years before school
  • Vulnerable children — to ensure that all children experiencing vulnerability are able to participate in early learning and are provided with enhanced support
  • Work and families — to ensure early learning and care is affordable and flexible
  • Improving laws and policies — to protect Australian children from abuse.

We work closely with The Early Learning and Care Council of Australia, Early Childhood Australia, the Australian Council of Social Services, United Voice, the Australian Childcare Alliance, the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth, and our Founding Members on early learning and care policy issues. 

Advocacy at Goodstart – a year-round priority 

We continue to advocate year-round to government, sector and the community for all Australia’s children. Here is a snapshot of formal responses Goodstart has provided about major government policy, submissions and inquiries over the past few years.
