What is the Early Years Catalyst?

The first 2,000 days of a child’s life are arguably their most important. They play a key role in determining outcomes like health and education later in life. However, despite substantial efforts from across the field, many children in Australia are still developmentally vulnerable. These attempts have failed to deliver substantially better outcomes at the scale required, and have not addressed the root causes and systemic forces at play.

The Early Years Catalyst (EYC) is a bold national coalition working to disrupt and transform the early years landscape. Our goal is to redesign the system and redress entrenched mindsets to drive better outcomes for children experiencing disadvantage.

SVA is one of the 12 founding members of the EYC. The Front Project and ARACY co-chair the EYC and SVA is hosting the backbone team for the first phase of the initiative.
