ECA Learning Hub
The Learning Hub team is based in Early Childhood Australia's National Office which is located in Canberra, Australia. Our small team develops professional development resources for educators and other professionals working with young children from birth to eight.


This course is aimed to assist educators in developing their understanding of what it means to support Aboriginal children to feel a genuine sense of belonging within their early learning community. This course is specifically designed to offer early childhood professionals the skills to work with Aboriginal children and their families looking through a cultural lens.


In this course, you will:

  • understand the importance of family structure and kinship systems within Aboriginal culture
  • learn practical strategies for building trusting relationships with Aboriginal children and families
  • learn practical strategies to allow Aboriginal children and families to feel a sense of belonging.
