Have your say on NSW landmark ECEC reforms

The New South Wales Government is seeking feedback from the early childhood education and care (ECEC) community in relation to its landmark reforms which will see big changes to early learning and the introduction of a  universal pre-Kindergarten year.


The centrepiece of the NSW Government Early Years Commitment will see the introduction of a universal pre-Kindergarten year by 2030. In addition, the NSW Government will be supporting the creation of more early learning places through the Childcare and Economic Opportunity Fund.


NSW Minister for Education and Early Learning Sarah Mitchell said the public consultation around these two landmark initiatives was an important milestone in the design and development process to drive change in early childhood education.


“We are calling on families and educators to provide their feedback on what they need in their local communities, and to share their views on what they want for the future of our youngest children,” Ms Mitchell said. 


“This is the initial consultation with the public, and over the next few months we will share more detailed plans for further consultation for those interested in these programs.”

Submissions are open until Friday 14 October 2022.
