We would like your feedback on the draft recommendations for the new Children's Services Policy.
During the development of our new policy, we’ve been working closely with families, children and the early years’ sector to understand how we can collectively shape the future of childcare, kindergartens, playgroups and toy libraries in Port Phillip.
In 2018 we shared the challenges and opportunities involved with children’s services and asked for your ideas for improvement. Your ideas informed the objectives in the new policy and now we have developed policy recommendations to achieve those.
You can provide your feedback by completing the online survey, submitting a comment or registering to attend a workshop.
The survey has 25 questions and will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. Feedback closes 7 May 2019.
Please take a look at the following documents to understand the recommendations before providing feedback.
This document provides more detailed information about the objectives and recommendations and how these were developed.
This document provides a summary of the information provided in the Policy Issues and Options paper.

Council will consider your feedback as part of the decision making process. It is expected that Council will decide on which policy recommendations to include in the new policy by mid-2019.
The policy will then be written and an implementation plan developed.
