Engagement centres

We partner with 39 early childhood education and care centres across New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory to inspire innovation in the early years and to translate research into practice. This partnership helps to bridge the traditional divide between research and practice using both an onsite and a technologically enhanced engagement model. More than 3500 children attend these services, with over 35% of the children and families enrolled are from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds.
