Transforming Early Learning (TEL) Reimagined Vision for the Future Early Learning System

The future of early learning in Australia is an ever-pervasive question and one without a concrete answer. The subject is on the national agenda and is resultantly a hot topic, with many loud voices competing to be heard and often drowning out others in the process. But what if this was not the case? What if diverse systems parties came together to create one collective vision? After all, as Abraham Lincoln and Pete Drucker aptly stated;

“The best way to predict the future is to invent it”.

When considering this quote in the context of early learning, it suggests that to predict the future of the Early Learning system, we must first reimagine a vision of it. That vision is precisely what the Front Project and The Apiary Fellowship have tried to capture in the following pages.

This Transforming Early Learning (TEL) Synthesis Report brings together research on child and adult perspectives from all corners of the Early Learning system across the country. The report is therefore a culmination of their diverse perspectives which, taken together, create a holistic, cohesive and informed vision of the future of early learning in Australia.
