'Learning Together' is a DECS program for families with children aged birth to four, which has operated in South Australia since 2003. The program is based on national and international research affirming the crucial importance of the very early years of life in laying the foundation for children's learning and well-being.
Learning Together focuses on the importance of children's oral language development, children being read to at an early age, the development of children's strong dispositions to learning, and the critical role that parents play in supporting their children. Development of the program took account of research highlighting the benefits of a preventative approach toward possible later difficulties for all children in vulnerable communities, rather than an approach where some children and families are targeted for intervention.
