Council is seeking community input to clearly map the current early years environment and to identify possible improvement opportunities.
We welcome your input via our survey - your feedback will contribute to early years planning and future projects and developments, to benefit all Surf Coast families and children.
Complete this anonymous survey by 13 December 2020.
Your input will inform a publicly available report that will benefit Surf Coast families and children, and will also inform the upcoming development of the Municipal Early Years Plan.
We know that the early years of children’s lives have a profound impact on their development and future prospects in life. From birth to eight years is when children have the greatest opportunities to develop neural pathways for learning - and are also the most vulnerable to negative experiences. Research highlights the importance of systems working in partnership with families and communities, to achieve the best outcomes.
