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.

Activities

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

  • playgroups
  • cooking groups
  • book making.

Costs

Programs are free to attend.
