The Aboriginal Families as Teachers program aims to support Aboriginal families to build a rich home learning environment. Through working directly with families and collaborating with early childhood education services, the Aboriginal Families as Teachers program has been developed to encourage early learning and participation in a quality early childhood education program in the years before school.

The program has six core objectives:

  • support Aboriginal families to provide developmentally rich home learning environments for young children birth to five years
  • promote literacy and numeracy rich home learning environments
  • build families’ confidence in their ability to support the healthy development and learning of their children
  • support Aboriginal children and their families for successful transitions to school
  • promote the importance of early childhood education within families and communities, including participation in a quality early childhood education program for 600 hours in the year before school (at a minimum)
  • support Aboriginal children’s developmental outcomes across all five domains (physical, social, emotional, cognitive and language).

To be eligible to apply for Aboriginal Families as Teachers program Round 1, organisations must plan to deliver the program in eligible communities and meet one of the following criteria:

  • be an Aboriginal community-controlled organisation or business
  • be a previous recipient of the Aboriginal Families as Teachers program funding
