Local Government and Early Years Network Working in Partnership Resource

  1. What Local Governments are and their role within communities.
  2. Why it is important for Local Governments and Early Years Networks to work in partnership.
  3. Up to date demographic information about children in your communities.
  4. Understanding the Australian Early Years Development Census, local results and implications for planning in your community.
