Video transcript - Quality early learning helps children be the best they can be

This is a transcript for StartingBlocks.gov.au’s ‘Quality early learning helps children be the best they can be’ video available here.  

In quality early learning services, educators build positive and respectful relationships with and between children. Children need to know that others care about them, and are interested in what they do, think and feel. This is essential for their wellbeing, learning and development. This video shows how quality early learning and positive relationships can help children be the best they can be.
