Connect at Home program launch!

During Early Learning Matters week at Connect Children and Families, we were very excited to launch our Connect at Home project, after being the recipients of an Empowering and Supporting Local Communities grant from Multicultural NSW.

Connect at Home is a local project that was developed in response to reduced early childhood education throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. It is aimed at building the resilience of families, by enabling parents and carers to better support children’s early literacy, social and emotional development.

Approximately 900 families across the Blue Mountains will share Connect at Home support packs which include four beautiful children’s picture books, with themes of resilience. Guiding notes for families are provided along with material from the Australian Childhood Foundation and the Immunisation Foundation of Australia.

We are very grateful to Multicultural NSW for providing the funding to enable us to provide such a great initiative for Blue Mountains families, and pleased to be able to implement this project in partnership with MOCS.

Launch attendees were treated to a special welcome and oral storytelling by Uncle Lex Dadd from Blue Mountains Aboriginal Cultural Resource Centre, an informative talk on shared reading and children’s literacy by Jaydene Barnes from Western Sydney University, an exciting reading by Billy Booksie from Paint The Blue ReAd, and a wonderful reading by local author, Sharon Baldwin.
