Supporting Aboriginal children

Resources for services which provide education and care to Aboriginal children. We developed these resources in partnership with the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC).


These resources:

  • review and consider the National Quality Framework (NQF) in a way that's more relevant to services which provide:
    • education and care to Aboriginal children
    • support to these children’s families and communities
  • give ongoing guidance and reference for services implementing the NQF into daily practice
  • are available to all service providers and early childhood education staff.

We've produced a flyer you can give to parents and carers which:

  • details the importance of early childhood education for Aboriginal children

  • gives tips on settling our Jarjums back into preschool during COVID-19.
