LEARN ENGAGE CONNECT YOUNG PARENTS PROGRAM 2020
Although this has been a challenging year. We have had some amazing outcomes.
The young parents had a challenging year with COVID19. Through zoom classes and the innovative approach and delivery by staff Suzanne and Maree, the majority of the parents were able to complete or partially complete VCAL. The engagement and the growth in our young mums is inspiring
The development of the children was difficult to monitor but we were able to engage the children in many activities and they are enjoying the Abecedarian program.
