The Department of Education’s strategic plan identifies the importance of providing a ‘Bright Beginnings’ for all young children and their families.
Tasmania’s Strategy for Children – Pregnancy to Eight Years 2018-2021 will help us achieve our collective vision of ‘Children Thriving in Strong Connected Communities’ through a focus on quality, equity and partnerships. As part of this Strategy’s release we have developed DoE’s Strategy for Children – Pregnancy to Eight Years 2018-2021. We also have a Guide to Reading and using Tasmania’s Strategy for Children and an Action Template available.
The Early Years in Tasmania includes:
- Launching into Learning
- Belonging, Being and Becoming- The Early Years Learning Framework for Australia
- Child and Family Centres
- Education and Care/Child Care services regulation and quality assurance
- LINC Tasmania

The Department’s initiative on Working Together for 3 Year Olds is an initiative that will be available for eligible children with the greatest need, with access being guided by a set of criteria to include children who are three years old by 1 January in any year from 2020 (i.e. the year before Kindergarten).
