Are you a parent or carer of young children aged between 0 and 6 years?
Are you interested in early childhood development and services in our community?

We are seeking an enthusiastic parent or carer to join the Greater Shepparton Best Start Early Years Alliance (GSBSEYA).

The GSBSEYA meets bimonthly on the third Thursday of the month and oversees the strategic direction for the Greater Shepparton Best Start Early Years Plan 2020-2025.

This Plan aims to improve outcomes for children aged 0 to 6 years by working with services like Maternal and Child Health, playgroups and kindergartens, and also the local community to ensure Greater Shepparton is a child and family friendly place.

Currently the GSBSEYA has representatives from a wide range of early years, education, health and family support organisations.

The GSBSEYA is keen to have a parent voice on this group in an advisory role. As the first and most important influence on a child’s life, it is vital the views of parents and carers is heard and contributes to decision making. You will be asked for input on the provision and accessibility of services for young children and their families and how we can continue to grow Greater Shepparton as a great place for families to live.

We encourage any interested parents / carers to complete the Expression of Interest form below by 29th July 2022.

In the future we may look at establishing a small working group, made up of several parent / carer representatives, to inform and support the Alliance in the delivery of the Best Start Early Years Plan.
