Learning Together Program

The Learning Together Program helps families with children from birth to four years of age become more involved in their children's learning. Some locations offer specific activities for younger mothers and Aboriginal families.

The program is run by qualified early childhood teachers. Families and staff work together to support children's learning and development.

You will help your child to learn and grow by:

  • playing with your child in a safe and friendly environment
  • helping your child build relationships and learn from others
  • discovering how your child learns.


The program helps families become more involved in their child's learning through a range of activities, such as:

  • playgroups
  • cooking groups
  • book making.


Programs are free to attend.

Children's Centres for Early Childhood Development

Children's Centres for Early Childhood Development and Parenting bring together care, education, health, community development activities and family services for families and their young children.

Children's centres help parents and children to get the support they need, when they need it, within their own community.

Early childhood services work closely together to provide the best support for children's development and families. Families can also be connected with other families and groups in the community with similar interests.
