The Victorian Government has announced a series of community consultations to determine how we can transform and improve the state’s early childhood system in the next decade and beyond.
Victorian Minister for Families and Children Jenny Mikakos has launched a series of community conversations over the two months in Geelong, Frankston, Bendigo, Broadmeadows, Latrobe Valley and Benalla.
“If Victoria is to become a world leader in early childhood health, learning and development, we need a clear vision of what needs to change, and how to prioritise those changes,” Ms Mikakos said.
“Children are born ready to learn – they are naturally inquisitive about their world. Their early health, education and care before they turn five sets them up for the rest of their lives, shaping their happiness, wellbeing and success.
“We want to hear about your experiences with early childhood services in Victoria, and your ideas for what a truly outstanding system would look like.”

Coinciding with the community consultations is a Melbourne symposium, to be held at the State Library of Victoria on Friday 9 October 2015.
