Our Maiden Gully Early Years Hub is progressing quickly! Framing is now complete with the brick-work well underway.
Our exciting new facility offers a unique approach to Early Years Education and Childcare. We will have on site 2 Maternal and Child Health Nurses, Allied and Medical staff to support the children and families.
By having these practitioners on site it is envisaged that early assessment of developmental issues will be conducted, resulting in the relevant intervention and support, in a wraparound service model, for children and their families.
This model of education and health provision is strongly supported by the Victorian Government and identified as best practice by early year’s research. It will allow for synergies in case management where dialogue and information sharing between medical, health and education professionals can easily occur to promote the best outcome for each child and their family.
This approach is unique and definitely the first kind within Central Victoria!
