Great Start Great Future - Northern Territory Early Years Strategic Plan 2016-2020

The Northern Territory (NT) recognises the importance of the early years (before birth up to age eight) in shaping a child's health, education and wellbeing outcomes.

Great Start Great Future provides a stronger, co-ordinated approach to early childhood education and care with a focus on health, learning and wellbeing.

The plan builds on the NT Government’s existing focus and commitment to early childhood education and care to: 

  • provide quality services that enhance children’s health and wellbeing
  • deliver quality learning programs to improve the development of children in the NT
  • increase the capacity of families and communities to care for their children and respond to their health, development, safety and wellbeing needs 
  • deliver a quality service system which fosters integrated services delivered by a qualified, supported, local workforce.
