Children’s Ground has been nominated as a finalist of the NT Early Learning Awards for outstanding achievement in innovation.

The Aboriginal led organisation says a strong foundation and devotion to embedding culture in early education will lead to empowering First Nations communities in the Central Australia.

Research evaluator from Children’s Ground Perena Anderson says the work she does gives agency, with children not being left behind because of early engaged learning.

Ms Anderson and Children’s Ground chair Will Tilmouth spoke to CAAMA’s Philippe Perez (audio above).
