Early Childhood Education Strategy

The Council has long recognised the educational, social, preventative and supportive role of quality early childhood education.

High quality childcare/early childhood education has social value as a strategy to enhance all children's healthy development, safety and wellbeing; a support to families regardless of their labour force status; part of a comprehensive approach to alleviating poverty; and a key tool for developing women's equality, participation, and transferable skills.
