Children & families

We consult with Victorian councils on issues related to early childhood education and care, services, funding and policies.

Through our forums, we communicate and consult with councils about our work in the early years area, and advocate local government perspectives to other sectors and levels of government.

To ensure a strong voice for local government and improved outcomes for families and children, we also collaborate with other organisations.

Our key areas of responsibility are:

  • early years
  • maternal and child health
  • municipal early years planning
  • universal access to kindergartens
