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, Transition to School Playgroup and Infant Massage classes.

Other programs successfully implemented to benefit children and families include:

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

·         The Multicultural Community Playgroup, run in partnership with Queanbeyan Multicultural Centre.

·         The Queanbeyan Dad’s Group, supported by Fathering Project

·         Term 3/2022 – SaCC & Partners Activities
