Excerpts from the executive summary

The Review has been asked to consider, and make recommendations on, the most effective interventions to be deployed in early childhood, with a focus on school readiness, improving achievement in schools and future success in employment or further education. (See terms of reference, page 96.) It addresses these vital issues in full awareness of the range of policy goals served by early childhood provision and the efforts across jurisdictions to overcome historical divisions between care-focused and education focused services.
