Early Life Foundations

Early Life Foundations provides expertise and support to parents, educators and organisations to create optimal parenting, learning and educational environments for children birth to 12 years. The organisation prides itself on our knowledge base and expertise and on maintaining an independent voice on the national and international stage for children’s development, teaching and learning, research and parenting.

Early Life Foundations recognises and acknowledges that to maximise opportunities for children, families and educators ongoing information, research and education is required. We are committed to the premise that enhancing opportunities in education and family life for children in their formative years helps create a strong foundation for adulthood.


One's true character shines through in times of adversity and challenge. The foundation years of a child's life help to build resilience and character.
