Prof Sharon Goldfeld joins a new 14-member expert Advisory Panel to inform the development of a Commonwealth Early Years Strategy — aiming to ensure that all children get the best start in life.
The Australian Government is developing an early years strategy to shape its vision for the future of Australian children and their families.
The strategy aims to create a new integrated, whole of government approach to ensure children aged five years and below have the best start in life during their critical early years of development. This strategy is welcome news for child health and development advocates, who have been calling for a national, coordinated, and integrated approach to the early years for many years.
The strategy will be informed by extensive consultation, beginning with a National Early Years Summit in February 2023.
Prof Sharon Goldfeld will join the newly established 14-person expert advisory panel to support the work of a Steering Committee and inform the development of the strategy.
