Children’s Ground

Children's Ground

Location:

Melbourne, VIC

Description:

Children’s Ground partners with whole communities. Every child born today should experience a lifetime of opportunity, fluent in their first languages as well as English, entering adulthood strong in their identity and culture, connected to their local and global world, and economically independent. If all children can experience this basic right, then whole communities will enjoy wellbeing.

Children’s Ground is an evidenced based approach, designed with First Nations leaders to achieve radical reform. We are disrupting the status quo where children live with injustice and disadvantage. We are celebrating culture, recognising talent, inspiring hope, delivering excellence and creating opportunity. Education, health and community development are at the heart of our work. From infants to Elders, we work with entire communities over a 25-year period to make real and lasting change. 

Congratulations to Children’s Ground for winning the Outstanding Achievement in Innovation Award at the Northern Territory Government’s Education and Care Awards on 15 October 2021!
