All children deserve the best start in life. Recent developments in brain research are widening our understanding of how critical the early years of life are for a growing child. The evidence shows that children exposed to early learning opportunities through playful endeavours will develop skills, confidence and an aptitude for learning that will remain with them for life.

It is our vision to influence communities with young children that adult-child playtime, enquiry-based play, imaginative role-play and support for learning will build community capacity. It is through developing a child's life-long love of learning that we raise educational aspirations that lead to better choices and more opportunities.

You can now visit our vision in action at the University of Wollongong's Early Start Discovery Space. Children’s Discovery Museum consulted on the building design and the production of the experiences. We put children and their accompanying adults at the centre of the design and the response from families has been overwhelmingly positive. 

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve life outcomes for children.

We do this by creating opportunities for children and their families to engage in life-long learning experiences. 

Our work is backed by research showing how early interventions that spark imagination build children's confidence, communication, collaboration, creativity and a can-do attitude. 

Join us!

We rely on philanthropy, sponsorship and income we earn from consulting and events.  Please contact us to discuss how you might like to share our mission or call Adam on 0417 690 423.
