Off to An Early Start


Off to An Early Start (OTAES) supports parents and carers with children to attend playgroup, pre-school, early years programs or primary school. The intensive in-home support program aims to build the confidence and understanding of parents and carers about the importance of early learning for preschool children.

OTAES workers will make a home visit and assess the needs and resources required for each family. They will then help the family to navigate playgroup, preschool and primary school enrolment procedures. OTAES staff can also provide information and/or referrals to family and community support services.

The OTAES program is funded by Communities for Children and is a joint initiative with the City of Greater Bendigo.
