Aboriginal Early Years: Little People's Meeting Place
What is Aboriginal Early Years?
Aboriginal Early Years runs an eight week course for Aboriginal families raising 0-5 year olds.
The service aims to build on the inherent strengths within Aboriginal families by enhancing parenting skills and facilitating links in the community. It encourages positive parental strategies and behaviours to be engaged over the first three years of a child’s life.
The service has been developed in collaboration with the Aboriginal village of Ninga Mia, and is designed to be culturally appropriate. Families set their own goals and are encouraged to take ownership of their own development and behaviour. The importance of kinship, extended family and Elders is recognised and valued. The service takes a holistic approach and considers the spiritual, cultural, social, emotional, environmental and physical aspects of the family.
