The Brotherhood of St. Laurence (BSL) NDIS is proud to be part of the Darebin Best Start Aboriginal Reference Group, who have worked together to develop a video series for mob, known as Nugal Murrup Buladu – belong, spirit, grow.

As part of the partnership project, a unique video series has been produced to focus on early years education, developing tools and sharing information to support families to navigate:

  1. Early start kindergarten
  2. Transition to School
  3. Supports for Children with diverse learning needs

The series aims to breakdown some of the barriers and address concerns that families and carers may have when reaching these educational milestones. The clips provide key information through the lived experience of community members to support parents and carers to know who to reach out for support and guidance.

You can watch the full video series below.
