Research statement

This original new research report commissioned by the Australia Institute argues that planned new funds from the national and two major state governments for early years learning have huge potential. Nordic-style measures to reduce privatised childcare – and now boost wages, job security and training support for children’s educators and carers – are urgently needed to realise that potential. It seeks to influence Australia's new national government to take appropriate policy steps including proper Terms of Reference for its upcoming Productivity Commission inquiry into early years learning.
