Working Together (WT) program is a Tasmanian Government Initiative which is opening up opportunities for eligible children to participate in free, quality early learning in the year before they start kindergarten. WT is addressing barriers to participation and creating opportunities for children to learn, make friends, build confidence to set them up for a great start in life. It also fosters important connections to help parents and carers through the transition from home into early childhood education and care and then into kindergarten.
To be eligible to participate in WT, children must be three or four years old and in their year before kindergarten and;
- Be of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander descent and/or
- Receive support or interventions from Child Safety Service and/or
- Have parents/primary carers who hold a health care card and/or
- Meet two or more criteria under Parental Evaluation of Development Status (PED’s)
WT services run at both Malangenna in Devonport and Drew Street in East Devonport. For more information about the program visit www.education.tas.gov.au/WT
