The Early Years

The Early Years strategy focuses on a strengthened community-based approach to ensuring all students start school well-prepared. This aspect targets children’s readiness for school by provision of a coordinated approach to engaging families and children with important services and early intervention to address areas of developmental concern, as highlighted by the AEDC 2018. This strategy supports children aged: 0 to 3 years – ensuring children are assessed and achieve developmental milestones that prepare them for schooling.
