Learning Together at Home program

Learning together at home is a home visiting program which supports families and guides parents in helping their children learn and develop through play. The program also gives advice to families about other early childhood services.

What to expect

A field worker will contact you to arrange suitable times to visit your family at home. They will bring toys, books and equipment for you and your child to use. They will work with you and help you:

  • set goals for your child's learning
  • help your child learn and grow through play
  • connect with other services that can provide support to you and your child.

Attendance and eligibility

Families with children aged from birth to 4 years are eligible for this program, however, priority is given to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, children under the guardianship of the minister, and those who need support because of:

  • social isolation
  • mental health issues or learning difficulties
  • a disability and or developmental delay
  • being new arrivals to Australia
  • being young parents
  • family pressures such as illness, multiple births
  • poverty
  • geographic isolation.

The length of time families stay in the program varies depending on the needs of the family and on the availability of staff.

Depending on availabilities, parents may be referred to a learning together program based at a number of schools across the state.

How to join the program

Most referrals to Learning Together at Home are made through a referring agency. Families can self-refer if they fit the criteria.

Learning Together at Home programs often have a waiting list so there will be a period of time until a vacancy is available. Fieldworkers will contact referred families to notify them of their acceptance or otherwise  into the program and the possible length of time they will be waiting for a service.
