It’s time to let our kids be kids - and let teachers teach.

We all want our kids to succeed and we all want an education system that is competitive, but testing has gone too far and is starting way too early. 

We have a federal government pushing for national testing of grade one students and parents feeling compelled to hire tutors for their four year olds.

The Parenthood believes it’s time to trust teachers to do their job and let kids be kids and learn through play.

We know that the best possible opportunity to identify the need for early intervention for any child with learning problems is through early learning, which means increasing access to affordable early learning is the best way to help ensure our kids are the best prepared they can be for school.

Ultimately, in these critical early years the goal should be setting up our kids for a lifetime love of learning.
