RSVP now to attend the launch event for the 5 Point Plan for Rural and Remote early learning. 

Rural and remote Australians face unique challenges when accessing early learning for their children. In fact, the 2021 Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) data shows children living in very remote areas of Australia continue to be more than twice as likely as those living in major cities to be developmentally vulnerable on one or more domains. They are also three times more likely to be developmentally vulnerable on two or more domains.

That is why an alliance of leading organisations who work in rural and remote communities have formed a group, the Thrive by Five Rural and Remote Action group.

Together, the action group has developed a 5 Point Plan which outlines what is needed to address the specific challenges of rural and remote early learning – so that every child, no matter their postcode, gets the best start in life.

We invite you to the launch of this 5 Point Plan, co-hosted by Royal Far West at NSW State Parliament House on Wednesday June 8 from 6PM.  The NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning, Hon Sarah Mitchell, will speak at the event, to be held in the Preston Stanley Room.

Canapés and drinks will be provided.
