We all play a part in making the early years count for our little ones.
From birth, knowledge and culture is passed from our Elders to our younger generations, and side by side, we learn and grow together.
Babies and children learn through play, with the support of strong relationships and safety of nurturing environments. Through stories, we share culture and language, helping children build a sense of self. From the skills and knowledge developed in the early years, our children continue to grow and learn through kindy, playgroup and onto school.
With deepest respect, we share the stories of our Elders, and acknowledge the traditional owners of this land. Walk with us, as we share the early learning journey, with stories from across Queensland.
