Advocacy & Research

ELAA’s advocacy achievements and vision for excellence and equity

ELAA’s vision is ‘excellence and equity in Early Childhood Education and Care’.

We work to realise this vision through the services we offer members and evidence-based advocacy on the social and economic value of early learning.

Our advocacy is informed by thought leaders, current research  and consultations with our members.

We promote these collective views to policy makers and regulators through a mix of channels:

  • collaboration with all levels of government and the education sector to share knowledge and champion high quality early learning outcomes for all Australian children
  • submissions to government and regulators about the long-term benefits of quality early childhood education and care and the value of a strong and viable sector
  • meetings with State and Federal Ministers and politicians
  • sector-based campaigns
  • commentary in the media
