Early Childhood Education
* indicates a required field.
The Ninganah No More Aboriginal language program has been established to increase the level of Aboriginal languages being taught in early childhood services in NSW. The program provides an opportunity for Aboriginal culture and identity to be developed and nurtured in the earliest stage of formal education, and provides a basis for the ongoing development of Aboriginal language skills at higher levels of education.
In July 2021, the NSW Government released the First Steps Aboriginal Children’s Early Childhood Education Strategy. The strategy places a strong emphasis on Aboriginal family and community engagement, child-centred services and the promotion of Aboriginal culture and identity in early childhood settings. The provision of Aboriginal language instruction is a specific objective of the Strategy, and the Ninganah No More program has been redesigned to support the delivery of the Strategy’s goals.
