Focus Issues for 2004 Early Childhood Education In 2004 the EAC continued to monitor the progress of the Early Childhood framework presented to the Northern Territory Government in 2003 as part of All Children have the Best Possible Start: A Framework for Action. This framework, which focuses on the 0-8 year age range, is designed to help with the coordination of policy and the implementation of a range of strategies and initiatives that will build community capacity. The Office of Children and Families is coordinating a joint departmental action plan and response to the EAC report, and in the process is consulting with the EAC, the Family and Community Services Advisory Council and the Health Advisory Council. Many initiatives anticipated by the framework are underway but there are still many opportunities to align policies and programs. The general feeling in the community is that now is the time to act on the evidence collected over recent years and to begin to make the changes talked about a reality. PETER GARRIGAN Chair EAC Early Childhood Committee
