Early Start works with a number of community groups, and can be used as a conduit for early years intervention programs – utilising our knowledge, facilities and people. We also provide evidence-based professional development, helping to build knowledge, skills and leadership for people in the early years environment.
At the heart of Early Start is our partnership with 41 early childhood education and care centres across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory who are helping to inform and pioneer innovation in the early years and translate research into practice.
By partnering with 41 early childhood education and care centres in regional, rural and remote areas Early Start is bridging the traditional divide between research and practice using a technologically enhanced engagement model. Through our Early Start Research Institute we are putting best practice into practice. Our technological infrastructure allows leading researchers to connect directly with any one of the 41 engagement centres, and to facilitate networks between them.
