Welcome to the Engaging Families in Early Education research website.
This website is for families, educators, services and providers – all those who are interested in the research project.
Governments and early learning services do not always understand enough about what life is really like for families on low incomes. In this project we plan to find out how governments and services could be improved to better meet the needs of children and their families.
In 2021, the research team are spending time with families and early learning service staff to learn what systems, processes and practices meet the needs of families on low incomes. We will be visiting six services in New South Wales and Queensland that are known for good practice to find out what works for families.
Through this website, we will share what we learn about supporting all families to access early education. We will also develop courses for early childhood educators and teachers.
You can find out more about the research on this website, or by contacting us directly. We would love to talk to you and answer any questions.
