New road map for early years and child care
A strong early years and child care system helps prepare our children for future success.
The Early Years and Child Care System Plan (2019-2025) sets the path for how we will continue to build and grow an early years and child care system over the next 5 years.
To understand the current and future needs, we reached out to a wide range of stakeholders, including:
- 4,000 families
- 250 early years and child care staff
