The NSW Government commenced Start Strong funding reforms in 2017 to support access to Early Childhood education for more children across the state. Funding under Start Strong is based on 600 hour enrolments. Participation in a quality Early Childhood education service for at least of 600 hours has been demonstrated through research to result in children who are more likely to enter school equipped with the emotional, social, and cognitive skills they need to engage in learning.
