A Strong Foundation for Every Child
WE BELIEVE IN GIVING EVERY CHILD A GOOD START
Children are curious and active learners who should explore the world on their own. Their early years are critical to their development and families are key in supporting them in their growth. Even as they learn to count and read in their preschool years, they must also be guided to recognise and manage conflicts and their own emotions, so that they build solid relationships and make good decisions for themselves. At the heart of matters, children must be taught the values of care, respect, responsibility, and honesty.
We will ensure our children have access to affordable, quality education, to provide a good start for all. We will strengthen support for low-income children and facilitate greater partnerships with industry and community partners to do the same. For children with greater developmental needs, we will improve the affordability and accessibility of early intervention, crucial in their early years.
