Child and Family Foundations Program

This program is a free service for families with children up to 12 years old who reside in the Charles Sturt and Port Adelaide Enfield council areas. It is an initiative funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services’ Communities for Children.

The program aims to strengthen early childhood development and the wellbeing of children and their families by:

  • Providing access to high quality learning opportunities for young children
  • Providing information to parents about child development and learning
  • Supporting families to gain parenting knowledge and skills
  • Providing early identification and support for children at risk of developmental and behavioural problems
  • Connecting families to social and community supports

We do this through:

  • Intensive Supported Playgroups
  • Community Outreach
  • Family Home Visiting
  • Supporting Fathers
