A blue-print that sets out what we can do - individually and as a community - to give all Australian kids a great 'head start' in life.
National and international research identifies the areas in which we can take action that will have immediate and long term benefits for young children.
The framework shows that everyone has a role to play in helping to give kids a head start - all levels of government, businesses, families, even people without kids.
By working together and investing in the critical early years of a child's life, we can grow up kids who are healthy, happy and productive. This will bring benefits to all of us - as individuals and as a nation.
A Head Start for Australia: An Early Years Framework was jointly developed by the NSW Commission for Children and Young People, the Commission for Children and Young People (Qld) and the National Investment for the Early Years (NIFTeY). A Headstart's background documents were prepared by Dr Mel Miller and the staff of Siggins Miller Consultants and Dr Catherine Spooner of the University of NSW.
