A great start for all children

Each and every child deserves the best start

Healthy, confident and resilient children who can successfully navigate a complex world are Queensland’s future.

Our partnerships with the early years sector, schools, families, communities and other agencies provide the building blocks for giving every child a great start in life.

A child’s early development is a key factor for successfully transitioning from home to early childhood services, and on to school.

By providing the opportunity for every child to engage in quality early learning experiences, we are laying the foundations for them to achieve better learning, health, social and employment outcomes throughout their entire lives.

Our child-centred approach integrates services, families and communities to collectively create a better future for our next generation of Queenslanders.

Our strategies

  • Provide opportunities for every child to access quality kindy in the year before school.
  • Ensure the quality and safety of early childhood education and care services through effective regulation and workforce strategies.
  • Nurture the wellbeing of all children and young people, ensuring they are safe, valued and respected.
  • Engage families to play an active role in their child’s learning and development.
  • Support culturally responsive learning for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people.
  • Build resilience for learning to reduce the impact of vulnerability.
  • Support positive transitions from home to early education and into school.

Kindy is the best start in life. It's important for our little people's future.
