Brand new minister

Ms Mitchell was previously Parliamentary Secretary for Regional and Rural Health and Western NSW. 

This background in rural Australia may give Ms Mitchell insight into some of the challenges facing preschools in rural and regional Australia.

The previous minister, Ms Williams, was not a resounding hit with attendees at last year's IEU NSW/ACT Early Childhood Conference.

The IEU looks forward to a better working relationship with Ms Mitchell in 2017.
