Queensland Early Childhood Workforce Strategy 2023–27
Queensland Early Childhood Workforce Strategy is a 4-year strategy to deliver a sustainable, qualified early childhood (EC) workforce who are recognised for their contribution to quality outcomes for children.
The comprehensive suite of initiatives supports the EC sector's diverse needs and settings that include family day care, outside school hours care, sessional kindergartens and long day care providers.
The Queensland Government has worked hand-in-hand with the EC sector to co-design the strategy.
First Nations educators and services were the focus of consultation and collaboration.
First Nations perspectives
First Nations educators, children and families are a key priority of the Workforce Strategy.
Each priority will focus on embedding First Nations EC professionals' perspectives and outcomes.
