The latest: Strategic Responses to the draft Early Learning Strategic Plan (Feb 2019)
Strategic Responses to the draft Early Learning Strategic Plan A discussion paper prepared for CPAG by Dr Jenny Ritchie (February 2019)
CPAG associate and spokesperson on Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Dr Jenny Ritchie has been involved in early childhood care and education since the 1970s, and has seen our ECCE sector demonstrate some major commitments, attain significant development but also face many setbacks during this half century. Dr Ritchie says that strategic plans are aspirational documents signalling key policy commitments, but finds the recent document is disappointing on many levels. A paper prepared for consideration by those wishing to submit on the draft, outlines some of Dr Ritchie's, and CPAG's concerns. Submissions can be made until 15 March, 2019.
