CEO of Thrive by Five Jay Weatherill says the government needs to “make a priority of the early years”, following a Canadian report which found entering kindergarten well-prepared gives children many benefits later in life.

“This is just one of the latest reports which just piles evidence on top of evidence about the critical importance of the early years,” Mr Weatherill told Sky News.

“It not only is important for their trajectory for learning through the whole of their life but also for their health and their wellbeing, and just the general level of capability of our nation.”

Mr Weatherill said the government needs to “step up” and invest in early education as it is a “national economic priority”.

“What we essentially need is a universal early learning system for every child in this nation," he told Sky News.

“That will have this other incredible effect, which is to free up people that need to work, because we’ve also got one of the most expensive childcare systems".

Thrive by Five is running a campaign to put early education on the national agenda.
