Telethon Kids Institute presentation – Thursday 1 October at 9.30 am – Karratha

As part of our campaign, we want to tell early learning educators, support staff and health workers about the Bright Tomorrows Parent App and how it can support you.

The app is a tool to support practitioners who work with children and families to encourage play-based learning in the early years. The Bright Tomorrows Parent App explains how every day activities such as doing the shopping or reading a bedtime story can have a huge impact on a child’s early development.

So if you’re interested or feel you could benefit from learning more, please come along!

This event is relevant to early childhood educators, family support workers and health professionals.
