Connected Beginnings is a program aimed to reduce the disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous children starting school and early education. Our program is for Aboriginal children aged 0-5years living in the Mt Druitt 2770 postcode.
We are supporting families to break through challenges family’s experiences in access such as transport, limited understanding of how services operate, fear of judgement and discrimination, isolation and navigating sometimes complex service engagement processes. Our commitment is to support all Aboriginal families and their children in having a positive experience and start to their schooling lives.
Ngroo has some new exciting programs we are working on quietly in the background that will be available for our families soon. These offerings include the following:
School Readiness Days
The Connected Beginnings program was launched in Mount Druitt on May 14, 2018 with Elders, community, service and government agencies in attendance.
