Carlton Learning Precinct nominated for Victorian Early Years Awards

Our Place is excited to announce that the Carlton Learning Precinct has been recognised as a finalist in the Victorian Early Years Awards 2023 in the category of ‘Continuity Of Learning’.

The Carlton Learning Precinct – a partnership between Our Place, Carlton Primary School, Gowrie Victoria, City of Melbourne, Department of Education and Training (DET) and Department of Families, Fairness and Housing (DFFH) – supports a local community experiencing disadvantage, with most school families being migrants who experience a range of barriers to education.

A focus on well-being, learning and childhood development helps guide children and families to successfully transition from kindergarten to school, with ongoing support provided. As a result, Gowrie Victoria’s sessional kindergarten programs as they stand are fully enrolled, with an annual increase in children continuing from Gowrie Victoria to Carlton Primary School.

This achievement is testament to the hard work of our valued partners across the precinct and relationships with the local community.
