Stronger Starts, Brighter Futures – Exploring trends in the early development of children from CALD backgrounds in Australia
March 31, 2021 - March 31, 2021
Early childhood education in the pre-school years is critical to a strong start in life. However, with more culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) Australian children starting school, many are missing out on early childhood education and are more likely to be developmentally vulnerable.
We invite you to join Settlement Services International for the launch of new research that shines a light on the need to increase the participation of CALD children in early learning and development
The launch of Stronger Starts, Brighter Futures will include a response to the findings from Anne Hollonds, Australian National Children’s Commissioner, followed by a panel discussion featuring:
- Sally Brinkman – Head, Child Health Development and Education, Telethon Kids Institute
- Yamamah Agha – General Manager, Service Delivery, SSI
- Myra Geddes – General Manager, Social Impact, Goodstart Early Learning
- Jay Weatherill – CEO, Thrive by Five
Learn of actions that governments, policymakers, service providers and civil society can pursue to reduce barriers and increase access to early education for culturally diverse children and their families.
