What is Aboriginal Early Years?

The Aboriginal Early Years Program is for Aboriginal families and carers raising children from pre-birth through to children to the age of five.

The Aboriginal Early Years Program takes a holistic approach and recognises the vital importance of Kinship, extended family, Elders and understands the values of the spiritual, cultural, social, emotional, environmental and physical aspects of the family.

The parents and families set their own goals and identify areas on which they would like to focus on with the guidance of our specialized team, allowing the parents to take ownership of their own development in relation to the program content.

Some of the Key areas explored during the program are Pregnancy, Child Development, Physical Health, Social and Emotional Wellbeing, Language and Cognitive Skills, Life Skills, Communication, social inclusion, Self-Care and much more. These topics are delivered using a range of methods including:

  • Individual consultations
  • Group work
  • Community education workshops and events
  • After care support services
