The Connecting Early Years Network Support Program was developed by WACOSS and is funded by The Department of Communities until June 30 2018.  Early years networks across Western Australia play a fundamental role in supporting young children and their families to live good lives. This program aims to support early years networks to stay strong and live long, so they can achieve their full potential. The model aims to provide support that is realistic, practical and builds capacity. In turn, networks agree to provide information about their group for record retention and evaluation purposes.

Support available to the networks can include the following:

  • Support to networks to engage with their community.
  • Support to build their capacity and sustainability to continue supporting children and families in the local community.
  • Learning and development opportunities for the networks including sourcing and promoting existing opportunities.
  • Support to use the portal as a central space to share information, ideas and resources.

Networks are invited to provide input about the major challenges and ideas that they have for the sector. To contribute simply click on the ‘add topic’ button and write your idea, challenge or suggestion on the template provided below.
