Quality early childhood education is proven to lift outcomes for all children but in Australia, early learning is often misunderstood. What should we expect from quality early childhood education programs?

Professor Jane Bertrand will discuss what learning should look like in the years before school, including the benefits of play and friendship.

Co-author of Essentials of Early Childhood Education, Professor Bertrand led a team of Canadian researchers to create The Early Childhood Education Report, which benchmarks government policy and investment in early education and care. Her work has contributed to significant improvements in early learning research and delivery.
