Early childhood paying off in NAPLAN. This was the heading in the Australian on September 14, 2012. The NAPLAN measures the literacy and numeracy scores for year three students in all Australian schools.
"Year three students are performing particularly well, with statistically significant improvement in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation between 2008 and 2012," Peter Garrett said.
"This shows that our focus on early childhood education is starting to bear fruit." the federal Education Minister said.
This was a pat on the back for the federal government but at EARLY PLAY AUSTRALIA we would like to congratulate all the early childhood educators, parents, grandparents and other carers who have always understood the importance of the early childhood learning that children do and who help to facilitate this learning.
