Community Connections – engaging families in early years and school programs



The pilot worked towards the long-term outcome of all children arriving at school who are
ready to engage.  The project recognised that being ready to engage at school means that children have the social, emotional and learning skills and attitudes that will enable them to benefit from the school environment. Activities and processes implemented throughout the pilot acknowledged that in order for this to occur, a number of things needed to take place before children get to school:

  • Participation in high quality early childhood services.
  • Strong relationships between early childhood services, schools and families to support a smooth transition to school for children and families.
  • Families supporting their children's learning and development

The work developed in this pilot continues, with Wyndham Park Primary School being the lead in chairing and hosting the Community Connections meetings.  For more information email Wyndham.BestStart@wyndham.vic.gov.au
