An Investigation on the Impact of Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) in Australia: A long-term analysis of ECEC’s impact on the education system and the labour market

Presenter: Dr. Hossein Hosseini, Systems Modelling Research Fellow, The Brain and Mind Centre, The University of Sydney

Abstract: While evidence supports the role of quality ECEC on child development and school success, and subsequently on contribution to the labour market, the latest published statistics by ABS show that less than 45% of Australian children aged 0-4 years attend formal care.
The outcome of the ECEC system in Australia has mainly been evaluated in terms of its early impact on children based on the Australian version of the Early Development Instrument (AvEDI) (and then on the schooling outcomes). Systems-level interventions are required to facilitate pathways to ECEC given the current growing trends in overseas immigration and increasing costs of ECEC in Australia.
In this webinar, a system dynamics simulation modelling effort will be presented; this model is developed to investigate the impact of ECEC dynamics on Australian schooling performance, tertiary education, and the labour market over time.
