Reform: Opportunity for action and advocacy
Tuesday 29 November 2022 4-5pm (AEDT)
With Catharine Hydon and Fay Hadley
It may seem as though the early childhood sector has been the subject of constant reform over the past two decades. And really, it has! From the design of the national curriculum and introduction of the National Quality Framework, to reforms around child care subsidises and kindergarten funding, early childhood professionals may find it hard to keep up with the ever-evolving policy landscape of the sector. While the constant changes do present some challenges, it is important to also view these through a lens of opportunity and advocacy, particularly as we learn more about quality.
