Morwell for Kids

Morwell 4 Kids is a community initiative that aims to bring about positive change in the Morwell area. It will identify and initiate opportunities that focus on supporting and enriching childhood for local children and young people. The initiative will listen and consult, reaching out into neighbourhoods, talking with children, parents, families, business, community groups, community service organisations and local government. Through this partnership we will work to create and deliver on a shared vision for Morwell as a place of opportunity for children.
Building Stronger Families - Early Learning is Fun

Early Learning is Fun

Early Learning is Fun (ELF) is a community initiative to promote the importance of investing in children under five years old. Through print based resources, ELF supports parents and carers to understand that with their active support, children’s learning can be enriched and the child-caregiver bond strengthened. ELF activities encourage parents to connect with their children every day: to read stories with them, to talk with them, to sing songs and nursery rhymes with them, and to play with them.
