Early Childhood Development
CPD’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) Initiative aims to elevate children on the national policy agenda by developing a vision for an integrated ECD system that will deliver benefits for children, families and communities, particularly those facing disadvantage. The ECD initiative works with policy-makers, early childhood sector leaders and experts to create space for new, collaborative policy thinking and action. The Initiative comprises two parts:
- The ECD Council brings together policy-makers and experts to engage with evidence, develop policy options, and share ideas.
- The Scoping Study translates new and existing evidence into resources and models to inform better policy decisions.
The ECD Council and Scoping Study are working to strengthen the connections between the ECD policy process, and evidence from practice and research.
