Become an implementing partner for SmartStart, a Social Franchise for Early Learning



Closing date 31 January 2018

Early learning is crucial preparation for school. And yet, every year, over 1 MILLION 3 and 4-year old children miss out on this strong foundation for future learning.  This is a national crisis.

To turn this around, SmartStart has developed a pragmatic, affordable model to rapidly expand access to quality early learning. The SmartStart model works through playgroups and child-minding programmes, and supports a national network of practitioners to deliver these services effectively.
