08 OctIncreasing engagement of vulnerable children in early years services

Posted on 08 Oct 2021

The Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare (the Centre) has been funded by the Department of Education and Training to deliver a project focusing on increasing engagement of vulnerable children in early years services such as MCH, playgroups and Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC).

The project aims to optimise the health, learning and cultural opportunities for children in Out of Home Care (OoHC), and more broadly all children experiencing vulnerability, including children with a disability and children from refugee and migrant backgrounds.

We want to identify information gaps and understand the barriers and facilitators professionals face when supporting vulnerable families to access early years services. The Centre invites you to participate by completing this short five minute survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/AccesstoEarlyYearsServices.

The Centre is hoping you can spare a few minutes out of your day to complete this short survey to make sure the work the Centre does is beneficial for you as educators and the children we all support – your collective experience and insights are invaluable to this project.

The findings from the surveys will inform future training, workshops, and forums to support better educational outcomes for children experiencing vulnerabilities.

If you would like to know more about the project or have any questions or feedback, please contact Harriet Wilson (Early Years Project Officer) at: harriet.wilson@cfecfw.asn.au or on 03 9094 3530.
