In this final issue of Early Year eNews this year we bring you the welcomed news of the launch of First 5, A Whole-of-Government Strategy for Babies, Young Children and their Families. This first ever cross-Departmental strategy is a 10-year plan to support babies, young children and their families. It recognises the importance of a child’s development in their early years and how crucial the role of play, supporting parents and providing timely healthcare and quality early learning care environments are.
