SaCC

Schools as Community Centres (SaCC) is a NSW government interagency program that supports the transition of students to school and the early participation of families into school activities. The SaCC Program in Queanbeyan assists families with children 0-8 years through a community development approach.

The primary focus of the SaCC Program is to enhance the early development outcomes of children birth to 8 years through the holistic approach outlined in the Framework. The focus on the early development of children is based on well-established evidence that the first years of a child's life are crucial for setting the foundation for life-long health and learning outcomes.

Parents are encouraged to be connected to their children and their community through attending: Supported Playgroup, Kindy Gym, Nature Play, Stay and Play and the Transition to School Playgroups.

Other programs successfully implemented to benefit students and families include:

The Book for Boori Project (Early Literacy Program) for Aboriginal families with children from 0 to 5 years old

The Aboriginal Homework Club in partnership with Barnardos

The Multicultural Community Playgroup in partnership with Queanbeyan Multicultural Centre
