Raising Healthy Families: Free Webinar Series  

When it comes to confidently raising healthy children, we are committed to helping our families every step of the way. This is why we are proud to invite families, both within the Lifelong Learning Centres community and beyond, to join us for Healthy Families: Webinar Series, a free, national webinar series discussing topics that are important to families and presented by subject matter experts.

Featured Topics 

The content of the webinar series is tailored around topics that are important to families of young children. This includes evidence informed practice, behavioural guidance workshops, transitioning to primary school, child protection training, nutrition, ASD, age-specific topics, and more.  

Our upcoming July session   

Our third edition of the series is titled ‘Healthy Families Webinar Series: School Readiness and will be hosted by Senior Advisor Pedagogy and Practice, Dr Lesley Jones.

Preparing for ‘big’ school is an exciting time in a child’s life. Ensuring your child feels comfortable in a classroom environment and has a desire to engage in learning and with their educators and peers is crucial at this point in their lives. Our school readiness program stimulates young minds, builds confidence, resilience and positive self-image, and supports children's transition to school, preparing them for a positive start!

During the 1-hour webinar, Dr Lesley will explore: 

•    What do children really need to prepare them for school?
•    What should a high-quality school readiness program include?
•    How to support children to transition to primary school.
This webinar will take place on Wednesday 27 July at 7:30pm (AEST).

Healthy Children 

Here at Affinity Education, we believe that raising healthy children is the highest priority for all families. Through our community of Lifelong Learning Centres, we embed our Healthy Children framework into all our education programs. 

The Lifelong Learning Centre’s Healthy Children framework is an integrated approach to learning that nurtures confidence, learning, and curiosity in every child in our centre community. The Healthy Children program is based on six key themes:

•    Healthy Minds
•    Healthy Bodies
•    Healthy Food
•    Healthy Families
•    Healthy World
•    Healthy Communities

We endeavour to support families and children through these valuable early learning years and support them on their Healthy Families journey.
