Early Childhood Consultation
As part of the Review of the Standards, the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment is looking at how well the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 is known and applied in early childhood education and care.
More information is set out in a discussion paper on Children with disability in early childhood education and care. The discussion paper includes guiding questions to help you have your say. You can also access the discussion paper in Easy Read and in other languages.
How to get involved
We want to hear from anyone with an interest in making sure children with disability can access and participate in early childhood education and care.
We are particularly interested in the experiences and views of families and carers, advocates and educators. Your feedback will help us understand how well understood and applied the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 is in early childhood education and care.
Our public consultations will run until 25 September 2020.
There are a number of ways you can share your experiences, views and ideas to inform the Review. This includes specific engagement events about early childhood education and care. Find out more about the ways you can engage by selecting an option below.
