National partnerships

NSW is a party to the 2018-19 National Partnership Agreement on Universal Access which supports universal access to, and improved participation by children in, quality early childhood education in the year before full-time school. The agreement has a focus on vulnerable and disadvantaged children and details how the Australian Government distributes funding for early childhood education to the States and Territories.

NSW previously had a National Partnership Agreement on the National Quality Agenda, however this expired in 2018 and was not renewed by the Australian Government.
