As Deputy Director-General for Early Childhood, Tania leads the development and implementation of policy, funding and regulatory frameworks to ensure all children from birth to 8 years are engaged in high-quality programs and services that support learning and development, and successful transitions.

Key features of this work include the implementation of the Queensland Government’s Kindy for all funding reform package, which will support all Queensland children to participate in a kindergarten program by improving affordability and access for families.
An influential executive leader, with a strong background in early childhood education and more than 25 years’ experience in the sector, Tania is responsible for improving educational outcomes, by leading policy development and driving key reform to benefit Queensland children and their families.

Tania is invested in making positive change and is highly motivated to achieve this through successful collaboration and partnerships—supporting all our young children, no matter their location or life circumstance, to have a great start in life.
