Ngroo Walking Together program

The NSW Department of Education has partnered with Ngroo Education Incorporated to provide the ‘Walking Together’ program.

This program has been developed to help community preschools and long day care centres build positive relationships with their local Aboriginal community and reduce barriers that may prevent Aboriginal children accessing centres.

The program combines cultural education training, a cultural audit  an action plan and Ngroo’s staff support for your service to prepare to respectively engage with the local Aboriginal community to increase enrolments for each child to attend 600 hours per year.

Not-for-profit community preschools and long day care centres in NSW wishing to be involved can submit an expression of interest with NSW Department of Education through Smarty Grants.
