Council encourages P&Cs to consider this role as the early years are a uniquely important stage in education for parents and children beginning preschool or kindy. Engaging early with families has dual benefits for the school-family partnership and community connections -particularly important and potentially enduring - for parents and children in the early years.
To help P&Cs recruit their early learning parent rep, we've created a customisable role description template and a Facebook promo or invitation to potential parent volunteers. Also, a valuable reference guide for parents of preschool and kindy aged children.

Early Learning Committee
The ELC supports parents to have an active role in their child’s early education and school community. The committee meets once each school term (usually online). Primary school parent associations with an early learning parent representative and the parents/carers of children attending early learning are welcome to attend.
Meetings: once per term either 10.30-11.30am or 7.30-8.30pm
For details of previous meetings see the ELC minute summaries.
