Primary teachers tell us that a significant number of students arrive at primary schools not ready to learn and struggle to catch up.
That’s why the Victorian and ACT Governments have moved to create a free and well-resourced play-based early learning system for three-year-olds. Providing support to children and families when they need it so all children arrive at primary school ready to learn.
But nearly 75% of Australian children cannot access these early education opportunities.
To fix this – federal and state governments must take action to make sure every family can access high-quality, universally accessible childcare.
Add your name and tell the remaining leaders that no child should start behind.
