Launching into Learning

A free program where you and your child can get to know your local school, Child and Family Learning Centre and other families.

It is for families with children from birth – 4 years of age and is available in all Tasmanian Government schools and Child and Family Learning Centres.

Children learn a lot in the early years of life.  Launching into Learning provides opportunities for you to be involved in your child’s learning in a supportive environment, helping you give your child a great start.

Why is it important?

  • Children’s experiences in their earliest years are really important to their ongoing development. These experiences have a major impact on their future achievements at school and later in life.
  • We know that supporting children’s learning experiences before they begin school helps with successful transitions into school.
  • At this young age, learning through play and exploration alongside the people that mean the most to them is a really positive experience for children.
  • Together, we can support your child’s learning and development.

Why should you get involved?

  • Your child will be involved in experiences that will help develop their talking, reading, physical, social and emotional skills in an atmosphere of fun and creativity.
  • Launching into Learning will support you and your child to have a successful transition to school.
  • Playing together helps build lasting relationships.
  • You will have the opportunity to access support and form friendships.
  • You will get to know your local school and/or Child and Family Learning Centre.
