Our Vision & Purpose
Future Tracks works to enable early childhood teachers, educators and leaders to enhance the quality and impact of their work.
Future Tracks is an initiative of The Front Project - an independent national enterprise that works to improve early education access, experiences and outcomes for children across Australia.
Alongside The Front Project, Future Tracks works to enable early childhood teachers, educators and leaders to enhance the quality and impact of their work.
We value the deep commitment of Australia’s educators and teachers to the wellbeing and development of children. We are passionate about unlocking new ways of thinking about quality, and what it looks like in practice.
We work with the sector to ensure current and future early childhood teachers and educators are supported throughout their careers – from final year teaching students, through to experienced sector leaders.
Our programs are designed to build on and leverage your current skills and knowledge. We provide tailored support, resources, networking and professional development opportunities that will help you take the next steps in your career, and stay connected with peers and colleagues across the sector.
Addressing disadvantage: Early education for all
Every year, more than 60,000 Australian children (or one in five) start school with significant vulnerabilities. These might include family or financial struggles, emotional challenges or learning difficulties. Many of these children have not had the opportunity to develop the foundational capabilities associated with early learning such as communication, relationship building, understanding instructions, and foundational literacy and maths skills.
Participation in high-quality early childhood education increases the likelihood that children will start school with the tools they need to learn, and is widely accepted to boost educational performance over the long-term.
When it comes to families and children experiencing disadvantage and vulnerability, Future Tracks believes in a personalised and highly child-centric approach. Our programs are designed to enable early childhood teachers and educators to celebrate the unique contributions of all children, and offer educational supports that will help them to thrive.
