This project focused on ensuring children enter formal education ready to learn and develop. The project also aimed to ensure that schools are prepared for children when they first attend, including those from disadvantaged backgrounds. The project worked with selected schools, early years services and communities to develop a new model of working collaboratively to overcome barriers to learning and development in two Victorian sites.
