Department of Education and Early Childhood DevelopmentThe Department of Education and Early Childhood Development brings together a range of services for young people from before birth to the beginning of adulthood.
The Department has four main responsibilities:
-:- provide policy advice to our Ministers about education, early childhood development and children's services in general
-:- implement Victorian government policy on early childhood services
-:- implement Victorian government policy on school education (including non-school based education approaches such as home schooling) for all school age students
-:- manage and drive continuous improvement in the delivery of primary and secondary education in Victorian government schools.
Within these responsibilities, the Department is focused on the provision of services to children. These services are provided both directly and indirectly - directly through government schools; indirectly through regulation or funding of early childhood services and non-government school education.
The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD) is committed to ensuring that every young Victorian thrives, learns and grows, enjoying every opportunity to realise a rewarding and fulfilling life.
