Abstract
The objective of the Early Learning Project was to increase formal early learning opportunities for children 0-5 years in the Families First Cumberland Prospect Area (Auburn, Baulkham Hills, Blacktown, Holroyd and Parramatta Local Government Areas (LGAs)). Formal early learning opportunities in this context mean structured early learning activities, for children in formal services, informal settings or at home. They might include pre-school, long day care, child care, supported playgroups and other structured child and relationship-centred activities, as well as in-home early learning ideas for families who are house-bound. The aim of the research activities was to map existing opportunities and issues and develop a strategic plan for the following three years. The methodology included a review of local and early learning literature; analysis of the Families First and other data-bases; interviews with key stakeholders and families; and a Service Providers Forum to identify strategies that had been implemented and opportunities for development (referred to as the Forum in this report).
