Dear Mr Abbott having read this,"principals will become responsible for making sure children as young as three are ready for school in a bid to improve Queensland’s lagging academic results".I am extremely concerned. A three year old should not be ready for school. Then I read “It is making sure that schools see it as part of their responsibility and role to impact on young children at the earliest possible opportunity and that means post birth really, wherever it is possible.” The impact mentioned is about boosting performance. Children are not tools or apps where you solely focus on performance. Did you know that in Norway children don't step foot in a school until they are 7 years old, you should have a look at their education model. 
"This could include ensuring fine motor skills like how to hold a pencil are developed' Wow how about playing with your friends, social and emotional skills and learning through play as holding a pencil is not taught by just holding pencil. The closing remark by deputy Director-General Annette Whitehead said "It wasn’t just about the year before school, or kindergarten, but from the ages of zero to eight" Right oh let's start the education impact at zero. Mr Abbott "Childhood is not a race or a competition, It is not about grades, numbers or statistics. Children have a small window of time to be children, let's not screw this up" Thanks Nathalie
