Because the social and emotional well-being of young people in Australia is declining, urgent attention is now being paid to the systems which support and nurture Australian children from before birth to the age of 8 years. High priority has been accorded to this issue by all Australian governments, particularly through the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).
