The City’s Municipal Early Years Plan aims to improve the health and wellbeing of children aged 0–8 years in the City of Greater Geelong. As we start to draft the new Municipal Early Years Plan 2022-2025, we are reflecting on the current version of the plan, Municipal Early Years Plan 2018–22.

We want to hear from parents, guardians, carers, and families about what you think is important to ensure that your children's health and wellbeing needs are being met, and what the City can do better in order to provide an optimum environment for families to thrive within our City.

The current version of the plan focuses on four key themes:

  • Supporting families to help children achieve their full potential;

You told us: You want a safe environment for children to grow up in and a family-oriented culture.

You told us: You value living in a community that supports vulnerable community members and has clean, safe, and fun environments for everyone.

  • Providing accessible and inclusive services.

You told us: You value living in a community where there is community vibrancy, diversity, and inclusiveness.
