Early Start

This is the place where curiosity rules

A place where research, education, and community come together for children, especially for those growing up in regional and remote Australia. No matter their background, circumstance or challenges - we stand for kids.

Early Start is collaborative initiative between the Commonwealth Government, the Abbott foundation and the University of Wollongong to positively impact on the life trajectories of children growing up in regional and remote Australia. Early Start is an entity of the Faculty of the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities.
