Connected Beginnings Purpose is to improve the opportunity for our Aboriginal children to achieve their best potential by increasing their level of participation in mainstream Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) and any other relevant services and settings. Our aim is to achieve systemic and sustainable positive change by working together across the community and services to improve school readiness and educational outcomes for our Aboriginal children and their families across the 2770 postcode. 

Aboriginal Health Services, Baabayn, Kimberwalli, Justice Re-invest, KOWA and all other relevant services in the area. The initiative is to address the elevated levels of developmental vulnerability, long waiting list, issues in accessing culturally appropriate services and the barriers that our mob face when trying to access Early Childhood Education and Care services in the Mt Druitt 2770 postcode area. Our Connected Beginnings Team is about strengthening the child service system by having our Aboriginal Community voices lead the way. The Connected Beginnings team do this by using the principles of the collective impact approach, which help us to ensure we have our Aboriginal community voices at the centre and then shared across the service system. The aim is then to bring the whole community together to address these issues and start working towards a common goal to achieve better outcomes for our Aboriginal children and families.

Ngroo has some new exciting program, these offerings include the following:

  • Speech Therapy

  • Health and Educational Screenings

  • School Readiness Days

  • Supported Referral Service (Supporting families to navigate appropriate services catered to their needs).
