Welcome to Early Learning Matters Week 2021!

From 26 – 30 July 2021, early childhood educators, parents, carers and community leaders around Australia will come together to raise awareness and understanding of the importance of early learning.

This is the 4th Early Learning Matters (ELM) Week and we want to make it bigger and better!! We hope your service will get involved and promote the importance of early learning.

Organised by Early Childhood Australia, ELM 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.

There are lots of ways to participate in Early Learning Matters Week 2021:

  • use social media to share photos and videos of how you foster children’s learning or support early learning and care services
  • use social media to post a message about why early learning matters to you
  • invite your local member of parliament or other community leaders to spend time at your service
  • encourage families to participate in ELM activities and share messages, photos and videos
  • talk to educators and teachers about early learning in your family or your community.
  • share our ELM Week poster about early learning with parents and carers

We will provide you tools to help you plan for ELM and support you to share your messages.
