Child Care Links
What is Child Care Links?
The Child Care Links initiative, funded through the Early Childhood-Invest to Grow initiative under the Stronger Families and Communities Strategy, aims to improve the health and wellbeing of families with young children.
A Child Care Links worker is employed to support families and develop relationships between child care services, children's services and families. In addition to increasing parents' knowledge and the understanding of services, facilities and support in the area, Child Care Links also raises community awareness of the importance of early childhood development and its influence on later outcomes in life.
The initiative is sponsored by the Department of Families, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Click here to go to the FaCSIA website.
