I’m a passionate advocate for early childhood development. As a nation, I believe we need to apply resources to initiatives we know will achieve game-changing results for children and the communities in which they belong.
The research speaks for itself – we know that a child’s brain doubles in size in its first year and reaches 90 percent of its full size by the age of five.
This policy space is currently split across different levels of government, a range of community, health and social service organisations. If we’re going to tackle this issue, we need to better coordinate our approach to the health and wellbeing of young Australians.
