Linking Learning Birth to 12 Years Project

The Linking Learning Birth to 12 Years Project aims to improve learning outcomes for Victorian children from birth to 12 years, by supporting parents, educators, practitioners and professionals across early childhood and primary school settings to develop a comprehensive, cohesive and seamless approach to children’s learning.

A major component of the project is the establishment of Linking Learning Birth to 12 Years Lead Demonstration and Action Learning Locations (Lead Demonstration Locations).  There will be eight across the state. Each will involve a partnership between early childhood service(s), primary school(s) and local council working together in innovative ways to improve children’s learning.

This project is also identifying and addressing (as appropriate) systemic barriers to seamless integrated learning.

The eight Linking Learning Lead Demonstration and Action Research Locations will build an evidence base for effective shared approaches to learning and collaborative partnership models which can be shared across the State. The locations will take a lead role in this process by sharing their learnings within a Linking Learning Communities of Practice approach.

Linking Learning Birth to 12 Years Lead Demonstration and Action Research Locations will be established in:

  • Yarra Ranges
  • Wodonga
  • Central Goldfields
  • Thomastown 
  • Whittington 
  • Warracknabeal
  • Bass Coast
  • Cardinia

A Communities of Practice digital platform has been created to support all locations across the state in networking and sharing learning. The Communities of Practice can be accessed at: http://linkinglearning.ning.com. Please join to follow the journey of the eight Lead Demonstration Locations and share quality practice.
