Improving development and learning of children in Western Australia
The Early Years Initiative
What does this project aim to find out?
The Early Years Initiative (EYI) has the overarching goal of improving the development and learning of children from conception to age four in WA. It aims to empower communities to design, implement and evaluate new, evidence-based approaches to improve the health, learning and development of young children prior to school entry. This ten-year partnership between communities, government/s, researchers, philanthropy and non-government organisations was envisaged as a place-based approach that would leverage current investment, activities and services in target communities to identify practices that could best improve the development and learning of children.
