Preparing For School

Our community is made up of people from a wide range of cultural groups and nationalities. All Anglicare programs aim to be culturally sensitive and welcoming to all people. In addition, we provide a number of programs for people from specific backgrounds. 

Early Learning Through Play

Early learning Through Play is a program developed by Anglicare to help migrant and refugee families to prepare their children for school. 

By working with families to help their children learn and develop through play, the program helps prepare children for a good start at school and makes the transition smoother.
