The Proposed National Early Language and Literacy Strategy

Over the past three years the National Early Language and Literacy Coalition (NELLC), a body of 10 key organisations, together with the support of the Ian Potter Foundation, and input from government departments, agencies and interested parties, have developed a proposed national strategy that they want the government to review and prioritise.

The proposed strategy sets out the scale of the issue; describes what is happening on the ground, in different communities, and puts forward a framework for action. It is condensed into four essential priority areas – family support within communities; early education and transitions; specialist support, and knowledge production and dissemination.
