Early Learning Matters Week is back for its sixth year from 24-28 July 2023.  

Organised by Early Childhood Australia, the Early Learning Matters Week brings together early childhood educators, parents, carers and community leaders around Australia to raise awareness and understanding of the importance of early learning and the difference the profession makes. 

High-quality education and care supports young children to learn and thrive. It is a great opportunity to tell our communities how high-quality early education and care supports children to be confident, enthusiastic learners, building a foundation for wellbeing and achievement throughout their lives, and all of this through play-based learning. 

Early Learning Matters Week was first staged in 2018, as part of the Early Learning: Everyone Benefits campaign, supported by a coalition of more than 20 early childhood service providers, peak bodies and research and advocacy groups. Initially, the primary purpose of Early Learning Matters Week was to better inform political decision-makers – across the party spectrum and across the nation – about the benefits of early learning. Now, it is exciting to see families and communities get involved in the celebrations helping us spread the word and in understanding the role early learning services play in building our society.  

Early Learning Matters Week 2022 was huge success! Check out our dedicated Facebook page to look at the lovely messages, videos and images that were shared during the campaign last year.
