Families and carers teach young children how to care about each other as individuals and as a community. For many, family relationships are not limited to households, but also include extended families and close friends - these are the people who shape our sense of purpose and build self-esteem.
The Plan includes a number of targets to make sure early learning experiences create the best possible start for every South Australian.
Strong, connected families with access to affordable housing, good schools and meaningful work give all of our children and young people a starting place to grow and feel safe in our homes and on our streets.
These targets have a particular importance for children. Many other targets in the Plan can also deliver positive outcomes for children and all South Australians.

It is important to break down reporting data by age wherever possible, so that we can know where tailored strategies and responses might be needed. Read more about how target data can be broken down by age.
