Currently work is underway to develop a Montessori supported playgroup program that serves the needs of indigenous families to improve the outcomes for children. The program is designed to be deployed directly to families through Service delivery Partners that operate in indigenous communities throughout Australia. Deployment of the pilot project is slated for Q2 2021. This project aims to provide an affordable program that can be deployed effectively in remote locations in a highly structured manner. It is expected that this program will bring greater levels of family education and support both for families and facilitators than currently seen in the sector. The dramatically lower price per family member is anticipated to result in far greater scale and impact of the program than using conventional means.
The program aims to benefit the families directly whilst also serving as a model for future programs to be deployed in remote indigenous communities.
