Launch into Learning issues Early Learning Report Card ahead of the NSW election
NSW voters who care about very young children’s access to early learning can take advantage of report card on the major parties early learning commitments before they vote on Saturday.
Spearheaded by the Early Learning and Care Council of Australia (ELACCA) on behalf of the nation’s largest early learning providers the report card released today carefully assesses funding promises for preschool programs, children facing disadvantage and support for educators and an ongoing commitment to quality.
ELACCA CEO, Elizabeth Death said it was important to release the information so voters know what parties will deliver for their children in NSW and in particular the access they will have to the two years of early learning.
“Two years of early learning are vital for all children to ensure they are ready for school and for life.
“Educators in early learning centres have been explaining the power of high-quality early learning to political candidates right across the State in the lead up to polling day.
“The report card is a careful analysis of the policy commitments given by the major parties.
Ms Death said the ‘Launch into Learning’ campaign had gained great momentum in NSW with the bipartisan approach to the campaign attracting the attention of both major parties.
