Aboriginal families are the first carers and teachers for their children. Our Early Learning Project helps train and equip families to introduce infants to the crucial first stages of learning and creative play.
In the Jawoyn region to the east of Katherine, NT, Fountain for youth funds an Early Learning Coordinator working for the Sunrise Health Service Aboriginal Corporation. Aboriginal parents are trained and funded to assist in this preschool education.
At La Grange Remote Community School in Bidyadanga, WA, we fund an Early Learning Teacher and Assistant Teacher.
At Lockhart River, on Cape York, QLD, we are supporting young mothers trained to supervise infants and prepare them for school.
Fountain for youth provides books, early learning toys, cots and other essential equipment to support the introduction of a preschool education for these Australian children.
