What support do young children and families need in Mount Alexander Shire?

That’s the question at the heart of a survey that will help shape an Early Years Plan for Mount Alexander Shire.

Feedback from the survey will help to guide the development and co-ordination of early years’ services, programs and partnership activities throughout the shire.

“We want to hear from children, parents, carers and service providers about what is important to them,” said Gaynor Atkin, Manager Community Partnerships, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

“We want to make sure that all our residents are well supported – regardless of age – and feel there is more that we can do for families and their children,” said Ms Atkin.

Three separate surveys have been developed for children, parent/carers and service providers.

The surveys open on Friday 6 October and will close on Friday 20 October. They take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

All survey participants go into the draw to win either a $100 book voucher or a $100 massage voucher.

Complete a survey online from the Have Your Say section of Council’s website or collect a survey from the Civic Centre, Maternal and Child Health Centre, Castlemaine Library, kindergartens and community centres.

Survey findings will be shared with the community at an Early Years Forum planned during Children’s Week at the end of October.
