Part A – About a Policy
The policy that I have chosen to describe in this report is 'Investing in the Early Years strategy – The National Early Childhood Development Strategy'. This policy was developed under the supervision of the Council of Australian Governments (COAG). This policy can be described as the collaborative effort between the State and Territory governments and the Commonwealth for ensuring that all children have the best beginning for their lives in order to create a better developmental future for their own selves as well as the entire nation by 2020. The aim of the strategy is to improve the outcomes for children in Australia by building a better early childhood development system, which responds to requirements of young children, especially, the vulnerable children and their families (Australian Government- Department of Education and Training , 2018). This strategy recognizes the outcomes of the early childhood development which all the governments (central and state) in Australia are seeking to achieve by the end of 2020 for the children. They include the areas of current action, lying within the currently available resources, which need to be reformed in the future (Council of Australian Governments, 2009).
The vision of this policy is –
'By 2020 all children have the best start in life to create a better future for themselves and for the nation' (Council of Australian Governments, 2009)
The major objectives of this Strategy are-
Equity and access: To ensure that all children are given equitable early childhood development and intervention services.
Sustainability: to ensure that quality comprehensive early childhood development and intervention services are delivered sustainably through the strengthened partnership of the government with the relevant national and international NGO's, UN agencies and families.
Quality: to offer high quality early childhood development and intervention services
Legislation: to develop regulations and policies for supporting the introduction of innovative services for the early childhood development and intervention services.
Support the capacity building of service providers for the families who have children under the age of 8 years.
