Early Learning Matters Week 2020

Early Learning Matters Week 2020 Banner with young children.

From 3 to 7 August, early childhood educators, parents, carers and community leaders around Australia will come together (online) to raise awareness and understanding of the importance of early learning.

High-quality early education and care supports children to be confident, enthusiastic learners, building a foundation for wellbeing and achievement throughout their lives.

There are lots of ways to participate in Early Learning Matters Week 2020. You might want to:

  • share photos of how you foster children’s learning or support early learning and care services
  • post a message about why early learning matters to you
  • talk to educators and teachers about early learning in your family or your community.
