The vital importance of child care, education, health and welfare systems and community services in contributing to healthy, well-adjusted, productively functioning and law abiding citizens who are able to contribute and participate optimally in community life is now widely accepted and increasingly well understood in Australia. So is the fact that early behavioral patterns greatly influence infants in the later years of life. Because the social and emotional well-being of young people in Australia are 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).
