Best Start

Best Start is a Victorian government early years initiative. Localised and targeted approaches are used to support children (0 – 8 years old) and families to achieve their hopes and aspirations for a bright future. 

Across the Peninsula, we work in partnership with agencies, services, and community to: 

  • strengthen collaboration and continuity between early childhood services 

  • provide culturally safe environments for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families  

  • boost access and participation in playgroups, kindergarten, and maternal and child health services.

The Early Years Yarning Circle 

The Early Years Yarning Circle is in collaboration with the Frankston City Council and Department of Education and Training. It aims to build knowledge and understanding of Koorie cultures, history and perspectives in early childhood education and support participants to embed culturally inclusive practices within our services. Complete and submit the form below to join.
