CEO of Early Childhood Australia Samantha Page joined Oliver Peterson on Perth LIVE to explain the advantages of making early education more accessible for three-year-olds.

“The evidence is really compelling. The best way to give children a good start to their education is through a quality play based pre-school program.

“It’s important people don’t think we’re just sending children to school at the age of three. It’s a play based program led by a qualified teacher but delivered in a way that children are learning through play.”
