Appointing an Early Learning Parent Representative on the P&C committee gives a voice to preschool and kindy parents and carers who are often more highly engaged with their child's education.

Preschool Parent Association and the Primary P&C Association

Preschool Parent Associations (PPAs) have a long history of contributing to early childhood education and care in the ACT. Over the years, new developments in education and changing family requirements have led many PPA's to consider winding up and re-establishing as a subcommittee of their Primary School P&C Association. 

These resources can help your association provide timely information and comply with statutory obligations. Please contact the Council Office for assistance.

The ACT Council of Parents and Citizens Associations – the peak body for Canberra’s public school parents – sees today’s budget as a mixed bag for the Territory’s public schools.

We’d like to congratulate Vivienne Pearce – long-serving, tireless and passionate volunteer for P&Cs and Council – on receiving a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) on Australia Day.

Did you know the Government is planning to offer free preschool for three-year-olds? Marina Spurgin, Council’s Early Learning Officer, would like to know what you think.
