Video transcript - Children and families are the centre of early learning services

This is a transcript for StartingBlocks.gov.au’s ‘Children and families are the centre of early learning services’ video available here.

A quality early learning service will invite you to help make decisions about your child and any changes at the service. For example, they may invite you to contribute to their policies and plans. Educators will encourage you to discuss any ideas or issues in a way that suits you. Good working partnerships with your service support your child’s growth, wellbeing and development. This video shows these partnerships in action.
