Start Strong

We would like to share with you a new Department of Education campaign that encourages parents to enrol their children into preschool for at least 600 hours (or 15 hours per week) in the year before school.

The "It Makes You Think" campaign promotes the benefits of participating in early childhood education via an iteractive website:

Ninety per cent of a child's brain development occurs in the first five years of a child's life making it a critical window for early education.
