The following objectives and measures that the partners of the agreement exercise over the next three years are: The agreement aims to meet the following requirements: the agreement is a partnership between the following organizations: the agreement has also been extended to Aboriginal agencies, municipal service organisations and specialized health services. The agreement has been updated to ensure that Victoria`s most vulnerable children can thrive. The updated agreement contains new priorities, objectives and measures, while continuing to emphasize that the Early Childhood Agreement for Children in Home Care (OoHC) aims to increase the participation of young children in OoHC in quality early childhood education and care. The agreement is also aimed at all children in the family and their facilitators who engage in supported play groups or koorie-supported play groups. Out-of-home care can be arranged either informally or formally. Informal assistance refers to agreements reached without intervention by the legal authorities or the courts, and formal care is followed by intervention for the protection of children (either by voluntary agreement or by a decision of diligence and protection), which is most often due to cases of abuse, neglect or domestic violence (Campo – Commerford, 2016). The agreement focuses on addressing the health, learning and development needs and cultural needs of children and, in particular, the integration of children into universal service: in a series of studies, children have expressed their ideas and feelings about the instability of education. The Australian Create Foundation study found that children with high mediation disorders were less satisfied with their OOHC experience than children with fewer disorders (McDowall, 2013). In a qualitative study by Gaskell (2010), the instability of caregivers, social workers and internships reduced children`s ability to build trusting relationships.

The stability of case workers has also been suggested as a problem that worries children in home care: almost 35% of children reported in the CREATE Foundation study that during their stay in OOHC, five or more case workers had been assigned to them (McDowall, 2013).
