Early Learning - Information for P&Cs

NEW  resource: pre-filled, customisable early learning content planner for P&Cs 

Parents and carers of preschool or kindy children are often highly engaged with their child's education. P&Cs can support parents through the early school years by inviting Early Years Parents to engage with the P&C community. 

Early years parents seeking ways to connect with their school, P&C, or other families will appreciate the facilitating role of P&Cs. Building school connections can seem especially daunting for first-time parents, single parents or relocated families. P&Cs help provide a friendly point of contact for new school parents with young children.  

Council encourages P&Cs to include a committee role for an early years parent representative. Download the 'EL parent rep' role description template for ideas of what this role might do at your P&C. 

P&Cs can also:  

Early Learning Committee

Council's Early Learning Subcommittee meets once per term and supports parents to have a role in their child’s early education and school community. The committee meets to promote parent engagement in early years learning, raise issues and share expertise.
