Home Based Learning Program

The Home Based Learning program is for parents/families of children aged 3-5 years and is being implemented as an extension of the In Home Support Program.


The Home Based Learning program assists Aboriginal families to provide positive home learning environments for young children, aged 3-5 years, and supports parents as the primary educators of their children in the home in order to maximise the chances of successful kindergarten and early school experiences.

The program provides adjustment to schooling preparation, assistance to Aboriginal children and families to complement kindergarten using the In Home Support/Home Based Learning programs curriculum framework. There is currently three Home Based Learning programs Bairnsdale, Mildura, and Swan Hill.
