About We Need To Talk About... How COVID-19 redefined early childhood education as an essential service

Kindy, prep and year one students were included in the first steps of a return-to-school plan for Queensland on 11 May 2020. What has this meant for our early learning educators? Have the impacts of COVID-19 changed attitudes towards early learning education from a political and cultural point of view?
