Funding for early childhood education review
- Approximately one in seven of the state's children were missing out on an early childhood education
- 30% of NSW Government preschool funding was not focused on the target group of four to five-year-old children
- Many four and five-year-old children were not receiving an early childhood education program with a qualified early childhood teacher, even though they were attending an early childhood service
- Funding programs prior to 2013 were poorly targeted and not directed at NSW strategic priorities for early childhood.
