Site Partners

Northern Bay College, Department of Education, Department of Families, Fairness and Housing and City of Greater Geelong.

I think it will be awesome in 20 years’ time when all the little people that are in our services now have families of their own and they say, hey, I went to that Centre and it was awesome; that centre made a difference to my life! Early Childhood Coordinator, City of Greater Geelong

Site Priorities

1. Children in the Corio community grow up healthy and happy.

  • Encourage a range of early learning activities and opportunities so that every child participates in early learning before they start school.
  • Support services and families to identify development vulnerabilities in children and get the help they need early.
  • Work with early learning services and Northern Bay College to make sure there is a consistent approach to children’s learning as they move from early learning to school.
  • Provide support programs and resources for parents and carers.

2. Supporting families.

  • Bring services and activities to Korayn Birralee Family Centre and connect families to support.
  • Facilitate the delivery of activities at the School and Family Centre where parents or carers can connect and learn with each other.
  • Make it easier for families to access different services by telling their story only once when seeking support.
  • Work in partnership with parents and carers to support their children’s learning and development.

3. Improving adult learning and employment opportunities.

  • Facilitate activities for families to connect with each other and pursue interests.
  • Partner with other organisations to deliver adult learning opportunities on site and employment support.
  • Link parents and carers with volunteer opportunities and support them with pathways to employment.
