A NSW free from poverty and inequality

Early childhood education is an essential circuit breaker for the 1 in 7 children living in poverty in NSW

Early childhood education is an essential circuit breaker for the 1 in 7 children living in poverty in NSW

Last week NCOSS hosted KU Children’s Services photographic exhibition celebrating 120 Years of Early Education as part of our 1 in 7 campaign to tackle child poverty in NSW.
 
Tonia Godhard AM reflected on her vast experience and knowledge from working for over 40 years in early childhood education. She emphasised the vital importance of universal access to ECEC for ALL children and that in NSW we are not where we need to be in funding for this.
 
We heard from Minster for Early Childhood Education, Leslie Williams on the importance of ECEC for children living in remote communities and from Shadow Minister Kate Washington on improving attendance rates in NSW and the need for increased funding.
 
In NSW we need an increased investment from $193 per child to $600 per child to bring us in line with other States and we need to invest now to ensure that all children have the best start in life.
 
Join the 1 in 7 campaign today to ensure vulnerable children can reach their full potential.
