The B4 Early Years Coalition

The B4 Early Years Coalition

The B4 Early Years Coalition is a collation of partners across the Tasmanian community who are committed to supporting children from birth to age four and their families.

The name B4 represents the early years of a child’s life from birth to age four, the years ‘before’ a child begins full-time school. B4 also represents the time before birth, recognising the importance of this very early stage of development. These early years are a time of rapid change and development for children, as they learn and grow and discover the world around them.


b4-image-1 What we do

The B4 Early Years Coalition will connect people and organisations from across the Tasmanian community who are committed to supporting children from pre-birth to age 4 and their families.

The B4 Early Years Coalition is based on the ‘collective impact’ model (Kania and Kramer, 20 I I) where organisations and individuals from across diverse sectors work together to address social issues.

The B4 Early Years Coalition will bring together individuals, businesses, communities and government to think about what we want for our youngest community members and drive community action to achieve better outcomes for young children and their families.
